Community Service

Creativity, Activity & Service (DP) / Service as Action (MP)

While subjects such as maths, science and languages are a part of an ISA Upper School IB student’s core curriculum, an additional focus is put on promoting intercultural understanding of world issues and hands-on experience through the Creativity, Activity and Service (CAS) Programme for IB Diploma students and the Service as Action programme for Middle Years Programme students.

Creativity* Arts and other experiences that involve creative thinking.
Activity* Physical exertion contributing to a healthy lifestyle, complementing academic work elsewhere in the IB MYP and Diploma Programmes.
Service* An unpaid and voluntary exchange that has a learning benefit for the student. The rights, dignity and autonomy of all those involved are respected.

*IB, 2015

The Service as Action programme gives MYP students an introduction into the importance of collaboration and service through the completion of a community-service based project.

The ISA CAS and Service as Action programmes are wide ranging, allowing students to explore activities that stimulate their interests. They allow students to experience different cultural, social and economic environments and to gain new perspectives on the importance of leadership and service for social change. Often these projects bring students face-to-face with new realities and issues that otherwise rarely touch their lives and thus, become life-changing experiences.
