IB CAS Tours
As part of the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme students are challenged to engage in experiential learning outside the classroom. The CAS (creativity, activity, service) Programme gives students opportunities to show initiative, demonstrate perseverance and develop soft skills such as collaboration, problem solving and decision making. Through CAS, students will enhance their personal and interpersonal development.
Our CAS Trips are about getting out of the classroom and engaging with sustainable, long-lasting projects that involve careful planning and execution. We use the UN Sustainable Development Goals as a guiding framework for all our trips and for CAS that means working closely with communities and NGOs to develop long-term relationships and projects. We work hard to ensure trips are engaging, challenging, collaborative and encourage students to recognize the local and global impact of their actions.
During our reflection workshops, students are encouraged to understand and the links between their CAS Trip experience and the 7 Learning Outcomes. When students understand the context of the issue, they feel empowered and can become advocates through awareness and fund raising. Our aim is that these reflection sessions will help them to succeed with CAS back at school.
Students of the Diploma Programme will love our trips which help to fulfil the CAS requirements of the Diploma Programme but they would also suit any other schools wanting a service orientated trip for their students.
Previous IB CAS trips have included creating a rooftop garden with youth from the Blue Dragon Children’s Foundation in Hanoi, and designing and building a playground in the city of Hue in central Vietnam.
