Designing logos for the CAS Learner Outcomes

Lilya Meier put her great graphic design skills to use on a creative project to design logos to represent each of the 7 CAS leaner outcomes.

CAS is based on the achievement of the seven CAS learning outcomes realized through the student’s commitment to his or her CAS programme over a period of 18 months. These learning outcomes articulate what a CAS student is able to do at some point during his or her CAS programme. Through meaningful and purposeful CAS experiences, students develop the necessary skills, attributes and understandings to achieve the seven CAS learning outcomes.

A video of images of the June Senior Prom that was organized by students as part of their CAS project. Thanks to Amy and Amrita for making and submitting the video.


The Contemporary Arts Society (CASUAL Multimedia) is a student led group which focuses on the creativity and service aspects of CAS. The aim of project To embrace different facets of modern subculture art and demonstrate our knowledge of these cultures. We look to create at least 5 major projects by the end of the school year, 2016-2017. These include art pieces, costumes, and models. We will meet once a week for at least one hour to work and discuss our progress. The 5 major projects that we look to do will be evenly spread among at least 6 members (and any others who wish to join the group in the future) which will allow for a manageable workload. We look to present our different pieces by showcasing them to the public, specifically other modern artists and appreciators.

OMG Ko Rin Trip Video

A video made by Luca Bertacca in Y12 to promote the work the OMG (Ocean marine guardians) service group is doing:

Being part of the Ocean Marine Guardians means you will be able to know about these full day boat trips that are soon going to be happening around once a month. On these trips we have a lot of fun hanging around in the sun and the water while setting up coral reef nurseries. We focus on the Koh Rin and we will be doing other projects that help maintain this island.
