Students need to have a combination of major and minor commitments incorporating a balance of the three elements
of creativity, action and service in order to fulfil the CAS IB requirements.

What is, or what is not CAS is a question frequently asked.

If CAS becomes a points-scoring exercise, its purpose and value is lost. It is an interesting variety of activities/
events/projects that the student finds intrinsically worthwhile and rewarding, and which is mutually beneficial to
the student and to his or her community. It is important that the spirit of CAS be considered at all times.

Generally, CAS is not taking place when the student is in a passive, rather than an active role. There should be
interaction. If the student is passive, nothing of real value, either for the student or for other people, results from
what the student is doing, and no real reflection is possible.

In such circumstances the student will be able to meet the objectives of CAS only to a very limited extent. Examples
of activities which at first sight would appear to be inappropriate are listed below.

  • Any class, activity or project which is already part of the student’s Diploma Programme; or being Tutored in
    subject area.
  • An activity for which a student is personally rewarded either financially or with some other benefit.
  • Doing simple, tedious and repetitive work, or passive involvement in a school CAS Activity.
  • Working or helping in an organisation or at charitable event, when the student has no idea of how the
    organisation or charity operates in society, or how their work/fund raising is benefiting the organisation.
    (The above example can be applied to many other activities purporting to be CAS.)
  • A passive pursuit, such as a visit to a museum, the theatre, art exhibition, concert or sports event, unless it
    clearly inspires work in a related activity in which a student is already engaged.
  • All forms of duty within the family.
  • Religious devotion and any activity which can be interpreted as proselytizing.
  • Work experience which only benefits the student.
  • An activity where there is no leader or responsible adult on site to evaluate and confirm student performance.

The following guiding questions may help students determine whether or not an intended activity qualifies as CAS.

                                            Is the activity a new role for me?
                                      Is it a real task that I am going to undertake?
                             Does it have real consequences for other people and for me?
                                    What do I hope to learn from getting involved?
                                   How can this activity benefit other people/groups?
                                       What can I reflect on during this activity?
                             Will I be able to achieve any of the CAS learning outcomes?

        Christmas Day. Christian: Jesus of Nazareth was probably born in springtime (Reformists favour Autumn). But in the 4th
SUN     century, December 25th was chosen for the celebration of his birth day by Pope Julius I (Bishop Liberus is also mentioned
 25     in 354A.D.). Thus, a Christian element was introduced in the long-established mid-winter festivals.

sound research skills in your work. This section is designed as a reminder to help you
ensure you are meeting expectations.
Some general hints about research:                                                                 Years 7, 8 and 9: At this level you will begin the process of gathering basic information
                                                                                                   about all the sources you consult. You will be asked to provide the following information.
Getting organised:                                                                                 Books: Author’s name. Title of the book. Date of Publication.
                                                                                                   eg. Brooman, Josh. Imperial China. 1991.
•   Plan your work well in advance. Good research takes time because it is often a process
    of trial and error. If you are doing your work at the last minute, it won’t get done           Electronic Sources: Author. Title of the site/article. Date consulted.

•   Find a variety of sources – you should always try to select and combine information
    from different sources in your work. In many cases it is a good idea to use a
    combination of both print and digital sources.                                                 Years 10 and 11: At this level you are expected to produce more information about the

•   Always read articles or related information thoroughly. Check that you understand the          alphabetisation and punctuation. We would also expect you to try to begin using in-text
    information. If you don’t, ask!                                                                citations. When you use work from a specific source you should show in brackets the name

•   Think about whether the information is valid? Who wrote it? Why? Is the information            eg. Overy, R.J. The Origins of the Second World War. London: Longman, 1998.
    believable? Does it match what other sources are telling you? This is always important
    but you should be particularly careful with the internet, as it is often not clear where the
    information has come from.
                                                                                                   Electronic Sources:
