CAS Project

We have finally decided on our project ! It was total challenge to get to choose the perfect project , from hosting public events to making music for charity , our team has decided to dedicate our time to write about our IB experience that could turn out to be an ideal model for future IB students. In this daily updated blog we discuss matters that occurred in class, share interesting information about an average IB student’s life and give a perspective of the atmosphere in IB.

Our first attempt was something big, filled with massive creativity and huge impacts on the community; it was to teach Junior Highs in the area about creative thinking in math and then hold a math league in the school. However due to shortage of time and different schedules this option wouldn’t be possible.

The next stop considered to be painless according to Bob Marley: “One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain.” We decided to write and record our own score, but since the preparation took more than usual we decided to go on with another project area.

We finally arrived at the stage were we taught of having an interactive IB experience blog, since us and our friends were good at design and were quit experts when it came to blogging we couldn’t reject this excellent idea ! The goal is to write as much as we can and inform others about our experiences as a service to the future IB students, and also being creative when it comes to summarizing a day in our IB life. Also this activity helps our self in order to have a better understanding of our subjects or even improve our productivity.
