Community Commitment Programme (including CAS)

The aim of the Community Commitment Programme is to provide students in Senior with opportunities to enhance their social awareness, through a variety of experiences which lead to CAS – the heart of the IB Diploma. The Programme has been extended to include the younger students in Senior. Short projects include social entrepreneurship initiatives, fundraising activities, and community service, some examples of which are listed below:

Fundación Logros l Knitting Club & Wool drive l Recycling Campaigns l Maintenance Assistance l
               Book Campaign l Introduction to Leadership l Colecta Techo l Winter Clothes Campaign l Toy Campaign l
Colaborar es “un boleto” l Social Entrepreneurship

 

 

CAS – Creativity, Action, Service

CAS provides an important counterbalance to the academic pressures of the rest of the Diploma Programme. A good CAS programme should be both challenging and enjoyable, a personal journey of self-discovery. Each individual student has a different starting point, and therefore different goals and needs, but for many their CAS activities include experiences that are profound and life-changing.

CREATIVITY is interpreted broadly to include a wide range of arts activities as well as the creativity students demonstrate in designing and implementing service projects.

ACTION can include not only participation in individual and team sports but also taking part in expeditions and in local or international projects.

SERVICE encompasses a host of community and social service activities. Some examples include helping children with special needs, visiting hospitals and working with refugees or homeless people.
