Our Community Service Programme incorporates within its being the tenets of civic responsibility and purposeful action by embedding the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) into the framework of service learning.
Community service is both a physical and intangible engagement that teaches students real world skills and instills in them a strong sense of responsibility and commitment benefiting the wider community. It takes students out of their comfort zone and allows them to nurture passions and make a difference to society.
At TBS community service takes on the role of service learning with projects stemming from within the curriculum. Within service learning, classroom studies complement service in the community and enable students to reflect upon and address local and national problems. They get ample opportunities to engage in various initiatives enabling them to develop into well-rounded and compassionate individuals.
From visiting NGOs and planting trees to organising Sports Day for differently abled students of our partner NGOs, providing shelter for street animals, and donating books, toys, food and ration, the focus of the programme is social and environmental issues.
Creativity, Action, Service (CAS)
CAS forms a core part of the IB Diploma Programme and is an essential part of every student’s DP experience. It is woven into the fortnightly timetable and provides real and purposeful activities to develop students into knowledgeable, principled and caring individuals through experiential learning.
A wide variety of CAS experiences such as creating music, teaching martial arts to girls for self-defense, spreading warmth through donations, and raising awareness through mental health projects play a great role in bridging the gaps to bring communities closer.
Due to COVID-19, service learning moved to an online model with students initiating activities locally from their global locations, in the spirit of Think Global, Act Local.
