CAS Week

CAS Week Brochure for 2018

CAS Week Overview

Every autumn, we suspend lessons for five days and our students have the opportunity to take part in a broad range of activities and expeditions that are not available through the normal curriculum. The IB ethos of Creativity, Action and Service is the framework that informs this curriculum.  Students are expected to take responsibility to fulfil their own potential by trying a variety of experiences, over the years, from each of the three CAS areas.

In 2018:

Year 7 students will work with a team of artistes from the International Schools Theatre Association. They will take part in creative skill building workshops. They will also work as part of an ensemble to construct a unique and creative response to an inquiry question of importance to them. They will showcase their creativity to one another, to parents and to Year 6 students from Sha Tin Junior School.

Students from Year 8 – 12 will select options for the week depending on their individual preferences. Locally, students can opt for a wide range of great activities including sport coaching, the Amazing Race, Dinghy Sailing, Global Feast, Photography, Pottery and much more. Overseas trips include trips to trekking in the Himalayas, animal conservation projects in Borneo, cultural immersion in France, Italy, Russia and South Korea and more. See the brochure for more details of the fantastic range of opportunities offered by our teachers.

Year 13 students use the week to complete their Higher Education personal statements. They also work collaboratively on their Group 4 project and will complete their Extended Essays.
