CREATIVITY, ACTIVITY, SERVICE (CAS)

CAS is organised around the three strands of creativity, activity and servicedefined as follows. Creativity is exploring and extending ideas leading to an original or interpretive product or performance. Activity is physical exertion contributing to a healthy lifestyle. Service is collaborative and reciprocal engagement with the community in response to an authentic need.

At II. gimnazija Maribor we have a wide range of creativity in DrugaDruga such as art and literature workshops, mixed youth choir, youth orchestra, theatre in slovene, english, french and german languages, international radio, film and movies workshops, etc..

Students can choose different sport’s activities from elective sports on weekly basis or take an individual project “Sport for health”.

In service we start inside the school community and get in touch with the local community (animal shelters, elederly homes, youth homes, infopeka, etc.).

IB students can participate in many international project’s such as SOLY (Special Olympics), Spring Festival, MUN (model united nations) and YPAC.

Successful completion of CAS is a requirement for the award of the IB Diploma.

All CAS students are expected to maintain and complete a CAS portfolio as evidence of their engagement with CAS and have at the end of the second year a final presentation of CAS activities.

CAS experiences can be associated with each of the subject groups of the Diploma Programme, especially with TOK (in making sense of their experiences as learners).

CAS enables students to enhance their personal and interpersonal development.

A meaningful CAS programme is a journey of discovery of self and others. For many, CAS is profound and life-changing. Each individual student has a different starting point and different needs and goals. A CAS programme is, therefore, individualised according to students’ interests, skills, values and backgrounds.
