On the 2nd of February, the Form 1 students at Waterford Kamhlaba had a full day of Creativity, Activity and Service (CAS). They took part in 6 workshops; including getting to know the UWC values through ART, creating cards to convey kindness and appreciation to someone else as well as hiking up the mountain at Waterford. In the second session they had a drumming and percussion workshop, a debating and public speaking workshop and a workshop on managing your communication. Following this they will all receive a CAS Journal in which they can reflect on their CAS experiences.
The school’s CAS Director Mrs. Fiona Mills said this is an opportunity for form 1 students to find out what CAS is and the role it plays at Waterford. “CAS is a core part of the UWC philosophy and therefore central to our student's education. All the three strands of CAS (Creativity, Activity and Service) play a vital role in not only the education of our students but in creating a balance in their daily programme and in so doing allowing for the development of the whole person,” she said.
