IB CAS activity serial report·Love overflows 1

Creativity, activity, service (CAS) is an experiential learning programme. It is one of the core elements in the IBDP course. It aims to let students develop an awareness of themselves as members of communities, with responsibilities towards each other and the environment, and become balanced individuals.

To this end, in the Grade 10 bridging course, there are various clubs organized by students, like basketball club, badminton club, drama club, music club, animal care club, to name a few. All subject teachers undertake the role of coaching students as CAS advisors.

Recently the recycling club and animal caring club carry out activities with the theme of “love”. Let us take a look!

Caring is one of the core attributes of the IB Learner Profile. It means to show empathy, compassion and respect, together with a commitment to serve, and act to make a positive difference in the lives of others and in the world around us.


Our students started an animal caring programme which began on a small scale. Originally, students planned to make small handicrafts like clay models and use the profit to support a local animal caring association.



After the a few weeks of making clay models, students made initial contact with the animal caring association and they met up with some pioneers in the field. The cat workshop makes clothing and sells them in a bid to help cats in need.




In the workshop, our students learnt that the owner of this animal association, Lydia , has been taking care of a wild blind cat. She came to know of the cat from one of her supporters. She took her to veterinarian and found that the cat was not blind but suffering from sclerosis in her eyes. After the operation, the cat started to recover and was able to get back to her life.


Unfortunately, a few weeks later, the poor cat was hospitalized again. Lydia had been told that the cat had leukemia. Rather than giving up on the cat, she decided to pay for her treatment.



Our students were impressed by her story and decided that they have to help stray animals like she does. After some discussion, they agreed that they wanted to make animal shelters for stray cats.


After an initial draft of the cat shelter with the help of the teacher, they started to work on the structure.





After a few days of hard work, students completed a few shelters. Throughout the process, students also put some of their Mathematics and Physics knowledge into practice. They learnt that precision measurement and calculations determine the success of engineering.


Finally, the students decided they should beautify the animal shelter to make it into a lovely place for stray animals to live in.


The final product of the cat shelter! All of the students were proud of their works, and they have also decided that they will continue to make more and put these shelters in the areas nearby to care for the stray animals.
