CAS Within LIS
Welcome to the heart of the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme - Creativity, Activity, Service (CAS). CAS isn't just another acronym; it's a transformative experience that encourages students to become well-rounded individuals.
At LIS, we believe that CAS should be an integral part of a student's educational journey from an early age. One of the unique aspects of CAS at our school is our commitment to starting CAS from Year 7 and continuing all the way up to IB2. We believe that fostering creativity, physical activity, and community service from a young age helps students develop into well-rounded individuals who are ready to take on the challenges of the IBDP. Starting CAS early allows students to build a strong foundation in these areas, setting the stage for a successful CAS experience in the diploma years.
