AISL Diploma Programme students are engaged in many meaningful service projects and experiences through the IB CAS programme, including service right here on campus. Katie, a Grade 11 student, has created a series of experiences in the Creativity and Service strands working with the Primary school music students. Katie has given up free time during her day to work with new Grade 5 clarinetists this week. She did a great job of giving clear explantations and demonstrations of a variety of skills. Mr Illingworth, the music teacher described the scene, "I know they loved having a secondary student showing them the ropes!" Katie will continue to work with the Grade 5 clarinetists over the next few months sharing her skills and experience.
Teyah, a Grade 12 student discovered leopard tortoises on her family's farm and decided to build a safe habitat for them for the cold winter months. The commitment to supporting the tortoises became one of her CAS projects. CAS projects are a series of experiences that last a month or more and can include Creativity, Activity, or Service. In this case, Teyah is providing community-based Service, which also meets one of the 7 Learning Outcomes of CAS, which is to demonstrate engagement with issues of global significance. Teyah is helping to protect wild animals, while doing service in her local community.
The Leopard's Tale is our main medium to keep our families informed on such things as the day to day happenings on campus, after school activities, summaries of any arts and sports events, helpful resources, and important dates and reminders.
