CAS Reflection

What has been the biggest challenge within CAS so far? What might you do to improve this?

One of the biggest challenges I’m having so far with CAS is my time management. I have at least 1 CAS requirement everyday after school, except for Monday (including my tuition on Wednesdays). All these requirements end around 5:30, maybe even a little later. This leaves me with less time to do my HW. This also forces me to try and manage my time better, which I have trouble with. It hasn’t provided me with to much trouble yet, but as the year continues, my lac of time management will affect me as the HW and assessments pile up. Something I might do to improve this is to start the HW the day I get it if I have time. This way I won’t be as stressed when the deadline for the HW/assessment comes.

CAS Planning

What aspects of CAS are you looking forward to?

I am looking forward to the Creativity aspect of CAS. This is because I love to do things related to the arts, like music, pottery, drawing, painting, and the like. I have even been learning how to play the guitar, though I am thinking of learning how to play the acoustic instead of classical guitar this year. I find creating very enthralling as I don’t see it as work. It can help give my mind a break from all the school drama. I am also looking forward to the Activity aspect of CAS. I have been learning a type of martial arts called Kali since I was in grade 6. It is something I really enjoy and participate in every Saturday. I am going to try and attend twice a week this year. This is what I am going to do for my Activity.

How might you plan your year of CAS in order to maintain balance?

As I will have no time no time after school if I get into the HS Drama production, I will join a local or global service that runs during lunch. This way it doesn’t clash with my after school priorities, like my tutors (and hopefully the drama production). If if don’t get into the HS Drama production this year, I will be doing my creative part of CAS during term 3&4. I will have more time to join an after school creative activity then. As for the Activity part of CAS, I will continue to do the martial arts class I attend every Saturday.
