Creativity, ACTIVITY, Service????

Recommended Posts

My guidance counselor recently told us that the A in CAS now stands for Activity. Has anybody else heard of this?? I confirmed on the IBO website, and it's is now listed as Creativity, Activity, Service. How is this different than action and why was it changed? Will my action hours still count for activity? My guidance counselor is not being very forward at all on this, so any help would be appreciated :)

From the IBO website:

Activity - physical exertion contributing to a healthy lifestyle, complementing academic work elsewhere in the DP.

From an outdated IBO Subject Brief:

Action - physical exertion contributing to a healthy lifestyle. Pursuits may include individual and team sports, dance, outdoor recreation, fitness training, and any other form of physical exertion that purposefully contributes to a healthy lifestyle.

Doesn't appear to be different at all

Do they fit the description above? If so, yes!
