Community - Action - Service (CAS) Program

Mission Statement

 

The ‘CAS’ Program aims to enhance outcomes (academics, leadership, character building, community mindedness and lifestyle choices) for active, highly motivated young people. This is achieved using innovative boys’ and girls’ education initiatives whilst incorporating physical activity and community mindedness as catalysts for teaching and learning. Graduates of this program will be equipped with the skills, knowledge and capabilities to be our future leaders.

Description of Program


The CAS program involves students undertaking a range of activities alongside their academic studies, enabling them to enhance their personal and interpersonal development via experiential learning. The opportunities this programme provides for self-determination, collaboration with others and being proactive in the community fosters a sense of accomplishment amongst participants and provides a platform for future personal growth.

CAS combines-

  • Pastoral Care (PROMOTE)
  • Curriculum subjects (e.g. IDT/HEC and the Arts)
  • Life skills
  • Fitness and health
  • Team sport
  • Personal development through the provision of the Duke of Edinburgh Award (Bridge and Bronze levels)
  • Enterprise (fundraising, community awareness)
  • The option to participate in the Kokoda Challenge (Jim Stillman Cup 48km)

The aim of the CAS program is to:
 
  • Apply and exploit current boys’ and girls’ educational classroom strategies.
  • Promote holistic student development to help students reach their potential.
  • Utilise contextual learning, current student interests, sport, welfare programs, community projects and the ICTs as motivational tools.
