School community service programme

As part of our mission to develop caring global citizens, we place a high value on community service. Service empowers our students, connecting them with others and taking action to enrich themselves, their communities, and the world.

Students engage in service projects, gaining invaluable knowledge and understanding, refining important skills, and developing key attitudes, like empathy and compassion.

A wide variety of programmes, both in school and in the local community, provide our students with a multitude of opportunities to serve others. Students can choose to join one of our community service clubs or take part in activities like building homes for Habitat For Humanity, teaching English in Thai schools, or painting and building orphanages.

Creativity, Activity and Service

CAS is a compulsory element of the IBDP curriculum, which requires our students to engage in a range activities during Years 12 and 13.

CAS promotes the importance of life ‘outside the classroom’ by offering a healthy counterbalance to the academic demands of the IBDP. Students are expected to spend the equivalent of at least three hours per week on CAS activities, sharing their time equally between the three components, and distributing their activities evenly over the two years of study.

A system of self-evaluation encourages students to reflect on the benefits of CAS participation, and to evaluate the understanding and insights acquired. Successful completion of CAS is a requirement for the award of both the IB Diploma and St Andrews' Graduation Certificate.

Years 7-11 (Pre-CAS)

Pre-CAS recognises the range of activities our Year 7-11 students take part in outside of the classroom. It's also a great way to encourage students to continually seek new challenges.
