CAS Week

CAS Week Brochure for 2017

CAS Week Overview

Every autumn, lessons are suspended for five days and our students have the opportunity to take part in a broad range of activities, camps and expeditions which are not available through the normal curriculum. These are also offered under the CAS umbrella and over time, students are expected to try a variety of experiences in each of the three areas of Creativity, Action and Service.

The options available vary from year to year. Recently in a typical year, the following activities have been available.

Year 7 students : Year 7 CAS Week will be a 5 day programme including a 3 day 2 night residential experience which offers a diverse range of fantastic, stimulating, fun activities.

Year 8 students : We have an exciting, creative and innovative offering for Year 8 CAS Week.  All Year 8 students will work with a team of artistes from Scottish Opera’s Education Department to produce a cross-curricular expressive arts project based on two Junior Operas, Warriors! The Emperor’s Incredible Army and The Legend of Slim McBride

Students from Year 9 – 12 : select options for the week depending on their individual preferences. Locally, students can opt for a wide range of great activities including a wide range of sport coaching, the Amazing Race, Dinghy Sailing, Global Feast, Photography, Pottery and much more. Overseas trips include trips to Japan, China, Myanmar, Bhutan, Thailand, Borneo and a host of other exciting destinations!
