CAS Fest is a celebration and a showcase of Volunteering and Service-learning. Through an event like this, students developed and refined multiple skills and attitudes. CAS Fest was organized on January 19.
The event is a reflection of their research, thinking, social, collaboration and self-management skills. The day started with the PYP Exhibition which was all about the fifth graders working on global challenges and taking action. They stunned parents and other visitors with their marketing pitches and pulled on heartstrings with their exhibition. It was an overwhelming experience for visitors.
Over and above that, students of grade 11 found the CAS Fair a great opportunity to raise funds for Project Infaaq. They asked the students to set up the game and food stalls so that the amount they collected can be added for the funds needed for project Infaaq. Each CAS experience teaches students something new, and this one was no exception. The kind of support from everyone at EPS, we hope to do even better in the future as well, CAS Fest was indeed a very successful CAS experience.
