Creativity, Action & Service
Creativity, Action and Service opportunities are key to life at Chester International School for all of our students. We are currently building on established relationships within the local community and is expanding this network to ensure that there will be a variety of CAS opportunities for students to choose from. Chester International School CAS coordinator consistently researches local and international activities for students to partake in.
Further to this, the CAS Coordinator will identify areas of interest to the student in their interviews and will support them to forge new connections and new CAS opportunities.
Students will choose their enrichment electives which will contribute to their CAS portfolio each term ensuring they always have a rich variety of activities and opportunities available to them.
At Chester International School, CAS is embedded within the school curriculum and there will be opportunities for students to opt for activities within the school community, local community, around the UK and globally. We will ensure that our students have extensive induction and training on how to behave appropriately whilst engaged in CAS activities and that thy are fully aware of their roles and responsibilities.
Students will be offered the list of different activities (local joint projects, school extra activities, enrichment electives, volunteer work, city environmental actions, charity or social events, participation in competitive athletic events, participation in political campaigns or political actions, land beautification projects).
Our studio believes that CAS programme activities , projects and experiences supposed to start as a personal choice and initiative of every student. Our academic coaches and CAS coordinator will work on each students personal CAS programme very attentively to ensure that all our students will have the best CAS experience: a chance for personal and collective growth and a realization of their own ideas and ambitions.
