Creativity. Activity. Service.


Exploring and extending ideas leading to an original or interpretive product or performance.

Creativity in CAS provides you with the opportunity to explore your own sense of original thinking and expression. Creativity will come from your talents, interests, passions, emotional responses, and imagination; the form of expression is limitless. This may include visual and performing arts, digital design, writing, film, culinary arts, crafts and composition.

You are encouraged to engage in creative endeavours that move you beyond the familiar, broadening your scope from conventional to unconventional thinking.

Collaborative and reciprocal engagement with the community in response to an authentic need

The aim of the “Service” strand is for you to understand your capacity to make a meaningful contribution to your community and society.

Through service, you develop and apply personal and social skills in real-life situations involving decision-making, problem-solving, initiative, responsibility, and accountability for your actions.

Service is often seen as one of the most transforming elements of CAS by promoting students’ self-awareness, offering diverse occasions for interactions and experiences an opportunities for international-mindedness.

Use of the CAS stages in developing a service experience is recommended for best practice.
