Creativity Activity Service
Creativity, activity, Service (CAS) involves students in a range of activities alongside their academic studies. It is not formally assessed. However, students reflect on their CAS experiences as part of the program, and provide evidence of achieving the eight learning outcomes.
How is CAS structured?
The three strands of CAS, which are often interwoven with particular activities, are characterized as follows:
Creativity: arts, and other experiences that involve creative thinking.
Activity: physical exertion contributing to a healthy lifestyle, complementing academic work elsewhere.
Service: an unpaid and voluntary exchange that has a learning benefit for the student.
VGS empowers the students to enhance their personal and interpersonal development skills by learning through experience. It provides opportunities for self-determination and collaboration with others, harboring a sense of accomplishment and enjoyment from their work. Meanwhile, CAS acts as an important counterbalance to the academic pressures of the school life.
