CAS Week General Information:
Creativity, Activity and Service are an integral part of the IB Diploma Programme and of life at RCHK. It is expected that students will be involved in approximately three to four hours of CAS each week, for the duration of Years 12 and 13.
From the 20th to 24th November 2017*, all Year 12 students will be involved in CAS week. This is an opportunity for them to choose from a number of activities for the entire five days at various locations throughout Hong Kong and overseas. Students will choose one activity from Monday to Friday.
CAS Week allows a concentrated period of time for the Year 12 students to spend fulfilling part of their CAS requirements, and provides an excellent opportunity for them, after a week away to come back and advocate on behalf of the communities they visited and share with us the activities they were involved in during the annual RCHK College Fair event. All those who participated in Service activities, whether they are overseas or in Hong Kong, will be expected to organize and/or participate in some sort of fundraising or awareness raising for their cause.
Please note that every effort is made to offer a variety of meaningful CAS activities each year, and issues relating to safety and costs are taken into consideration. Accurate costs for HK-based activities and the overseas opportunities can only be finalized once we have a firm commitment from students in the form of a non-refundable deposit (HK$2,000 for overseas opportunities).
* These dates vary for overseas opportunities. Depending on flights available and travel times, trips could depart as early as Thursday, 16th November and return as late as Sunday 26th November 2017.
This promises to be an enriching experience for the students and we look forward to seeing them challenge themselves in a variety of settings.
