ASB Mission, Beliefs and Objectives
R
espect is a fundamental right.


All persons should act in a way that is
responsible
with society and the environment.

In a
Global
Society,
teamwork
and effective
communication
are
essential
skills.


Intelectual, social, emotional and physical
development

are

equally important throughout life.
SERVICE
"Service projects and activities are often the most
transforming
element of the DP for the individual student.
Service
involves
interaction,
such as the building of links with individual or groups in the community (direct contact service activities);
service
can take place at the
school,

local,

national
and
international
levels. Service projects and activities should not only involve doing
things for others
but also doing things
with others
and developing a real
commitment
with them. The relationship should therefore show
respect for the dignity
and
self-respect
of others.” CAS Guide 2001
CREATIVITY + SERVICE
CREATIVITY can be enhanced by incorporating the service element.

Students involved in the arts, and in physical activities might consider coaching young children, seniors in residential homes, street children and so on...
WHAT DEFINES A CAS ACTIVITY
All proposed CAS activities need to meet these four criteria:

Real, purposeful activities, with significant outcomes for those involved

Personal
challenge
- tasks must extend the student and be achievable in scope

Thoughtful consideration, such as
planning, reviewing progress, reporting

Reflection
on outcomes and personal learning.
PORTFOLIO
Your CAS portfolio must consist of activities that have you involved outside of the classroom, within the school, and within regional and international communities. A total of 150 hours must be completed over at least 18 months of grades 11 and 12. There should be a balance between the three categories: Creativity, Action, and Service.
Poviding Evidence & Reflections
You must provide evidence that you have met, at one time or another, all eight of the CAS Learning Outcomes through your involvement in the CAS activities you describe. As much as possible, you should
upload,

store and manage your evidence
on your
CAS Portfolio
. When this is not possible, you will need to store and organize your physical evidence in a designated container/receptacle; this will be presented to your
Advisor/Coordinator upon request
.You must also record
ongoing reflections
about the activities in which you are involved. Reflections will be primarily completed and maintained using
any kind of electronic format (Pi, GoogleDocs)
.

..if you believe in something, you must not just think or talk or write, but must act.
Peterson (2003)
