Since October, the DP CAS Program has had a new partner—Changchun Lala Elementary School. 45 DP students went there to teach them English during this cold winter, even so they were earnest and enthusiastic throughout their time there.
It is good to take responsibility seriously! All the teaching materials and plans were prepared by CAIS students. They tried to search for information; they asked teachers for help and used different teaching methods to improve the students’ English quickly.
Many students in Lala School are in the same situation: Their parents work away from home, so they have to live with their grandparents. The time with their parents is always brief but is cherished by the children. Although they are young, they have already learnt to be independent and strong. There is almost no opportunity for them to travel or go abroad, so when our DP students talked about “The whole world”, we could easily see the desire in their eyes.
Although it is hard for them, they are eager to learn. When listening to their stories, you can feel their desire and their efforts to realize their dreams. Lala students are changing our students’ views, while CAIS students are also influencing Lala students with knowledge and love.
CAIS wants to say, “Keep up the good work!” CAIS also has a dream: We hope that one day the children from Lala school’s can help others just like CAIS’s students are doing, and we also hope that DP students can spread this devotion to more places…
CAIS appreciates the efforts of all the CAS teachers and the support of leaders from Lala school.
CAS stands for Creativity, Action and Service. CAS encourages students to be creative, enhancing their culture and art, caring for others and developing the ability to cooperate. CAS is an IBDP core course. Since IB does not only emphasize the learning of knowledge, students who passed the CAS challenges can gain independence, adaptability and creativity; onward towards full development.
