Community and Service in the DP

The Creativity, Activity and Service (CAS) component of the Diploma Programme at the International School of Phnom Penh serves an important role in helping to fulfil the school’s mission statement.

CAS is at the heart of the Di­ploma Programme. It involves students in a range of activities alongside their academic studies. CAS enables students to enhance their personal and inter­personal development through experiential learning. Each indi­vidual student has a different starting point, and therefore different goals and needs, but for many their CAS activities include experiences that are profound and life-changing.

CAS Strand Description

Creativity: Arts, and other experiences that involve creative thinking.

Action: Physical exertion contributing to a healthy lifestyle, complementing academic work.

Service: An unpaid and voluntary exchange that has a learning benefit for the student. The rights, dignity and autonomy of all those involved are respected.
