Taking the survey, we have quite a long way to go. We have focused a bit on CAS in the Diploma but we don’t have a comprehensive idea of service-learning that goes beyond our mission “We inspire innovation and compassionate action”.
That sounds good, but we need to move further. I am currently not the CAS coordinator, but just talking today has given me a renewed purpose to become a bit more involved.
Beyond CAS, we have a student-led Week without walls (but mostly in school given our location except for international trips) and we require grade 9 and 10 students to complete a collaborative service-learning project each year. This is not done in a class but in during homeroom time. They loosely follow the CAS stages.
Quite a lot of work to do to build structures, but that seems a common problem in our school at the moment.
I am undaunted!
