CAS stands for:

C = Creativity (the arts, expressive activities, original and interpretive thought, learning new skills, performing)

A = Activity (physical activity, breaking a sweat (not just because it’s hot!))

S = Service (doing something for others that they cannot do for themselves, cannot access or cannot afford, fulfilling a genuine need)

Why have a CAS Week?

At RCHK, we recognize the pressure that Diploma students are under to complete all that is required of them in the rigorous International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme. We collapse the curriculum for the entire Year 12 cohort for one week, to allow them the opportunity to try something new and challenging in a concentrated time period.

Please note - this is not the only CAS that students will be involved in!

CAS should...

  • be challenging
  • be meaningful
  • involve personal goal-setting and reflecting
  • be enjoyable!
  • not be repetitive, passive or simple
