Creativity, Activity and Service
Creativity, Activity and Service (CAS) is one of the essential components of the IB Diploma Programme. It enables students to show initiative, demonstrate perseverance and develops skills such as collaboration, problem solving and decision making.
CAS is the experiential learning component of Bangalore International School and is mandatory for all students. Contributing to the society is a philosophy in which we all believe at BIS. With this belief we run the CAS programme for the entire school. Students are encouraged to form clubs of their interest. These clubs are managed by students themselves, with teachers acting as facilitators. Middle and High School students form separate groups so that every student gets an opportunity to develop leadership skills. Through CAS activity, students develop empathy, belongingness and a sense of being a part of the larger society. Their personal and interpersonal development through experiential learning is enhanced. They are involved in challenging and life changing experiences through self-discovery and awareness. They understand their own strengths and limitations, identify goals and devise strategies for personal growth.
At the end of the year, students are appreciated and rewarded for their proactive contribution and collaborative work.
