Creativity, Activity, Service (CAS) is one of the three core elements of the IBDP in which students engage over the two years of the programme in activities related to creativity, activity and service. In addition to these activities, IBDP students are required to work collaboratively to complete a CAS related project.
The Creativity aspect of CAS entails exploring and extending ideas leading to an original or interpretive product or performance. The Activity aspect entails physical exertion contributing to a healthy lifestyle, and Service entails collaborative and reciprocal engagement with the community in response to an authentic need.
CAS paves the way for students to learn through experience and balances the academic pressures of the DP. It encourages students to develop their skills, work collaboratively on shared goals and be actively involved in the local, national and global communities.
IKNS students engage in a variety of activities within the school that are recognised as CAS related activities and projects. These include involvement in after school clubs, societies and activities. IKNS provides a wide variety of activities that suit the different students’ talents and interests, and provide new learning experiences for them. Activities include the Honor Society, Student Congress, Go Green, MUN, Tradequest, Injaz, Arabic Magazine, Yearbook Club, Heritage Club, Leadership Club, Basketball, Volleyball, Soccer, Track and Field, Badminton, Tennis, Table Tennis, Handball. They participate in competitions, organize charity events and propose initiatives for improvements around school and beyond.
Students also participate in clubs and activities outside school and volunteer to work with less advantaged groups both nationally and internationally.
