Common Core

CAS

150 hours in two years (2 hours per week)

Personal experiences and new challenges

Creativity: disciplines artistic and other activities involving creative thinking.

  • Exhibition, show, video

Action: physical exercise help to maintain a healthy lifestyle and completing school work done in other disciplines Diploma Programme

  • 20km from Brussels to raise funds, music lessons

Evaluation

This is an appreciation of the investment made during the two years.
The learner will be followed weekly by the supervisor of the CAS to take stock of the progress and the progress of activities.
It will also be supervised by a person of this contact within the organization where the project is located.

Each student will complete a regular diary where there will clarify its objectives and the activities it has chosen to achieve.
The hours were devoted to each project will be noted and a report each day devoted to the CAS.
