Secondary School Service Learning

Service Learning Clubs
MYP refers to service learning as Service as Action. Diploma Programme refers to service aspart of the CAS program.
IB students are expected to become involved with their community (at school and beyond). Students take action when they apply what they are learning in the classroom and beyond. As caring members of a community, they make a positive difference to the lives of others and to the environment.

All AISVN Secondary students take part in Eagle Service Learning Clubs on Thursday afternoons. Every secondary student chooses a club in which to participate and throughout the year, club supervisors will guide students to apply the concepts they have learned in their classrooms to address an identified need within and beyond the school community, further strengthening AISVN’ commitment to develop our students as globally-minded individuals. The ‘Service as Action’ outcomes are closely associated with the IB learner profile attributes and Approaches to Learning (AtL) skills. Through their participation in service, students can become more confident, self-regulated learners.

Students will:

  • Increase their awareness of their own strengths and areas for growth.
  • Undertake new challenges.
  • Plan and initiate activities.
  • Work collaboratively with others.
  • Show perseverance and commitment in their activities.
  • Engage with issues of global importance.
  • Consider the ethical implications of their actions.
  • Develop new skills.

Current Service Learning Clubs are:

  • Arts for Humanity.
  • Athletic Council.
  • ECO Club.
  • GSL Club.
  • Vietnamese Culture Club.
  • Big Brother, Big Sister.
  • AISVN Ambassadors.
  • The Fun Race Project.
  • Psychology Club.
  • GIN Club.
  • STAR Media.
  • Junior Achievement Club.

CAS - (Creativity, Activity, Service) - Grades 11 & 12

CAS is one of the three essential elements that every student must complete as part of the Diploma Programme (DP).
Studied throughout the Diploma Programme, CAS involves students in a range of activities alongside their academic studies.

The three strands of CAS, which are often interwoven with particular activities, are characterized as follows:

  • Creativity – arts, and other experiences that involve creative thinking.
  • Activity – physical exertion contributing to a healthy lifestyle, complementing academic work elsewhere in the DP.
  • Service – an unpaid and voluntary exchange that has a learning benefit for the student.
    The rights, dignity and autonomy of all those involved are respected.

In order to demonstrate these concepts, students are required to undertake a CAS Project.
The project challenges students to:

  • Show initiative
  • Demonstrate perseverance
  • Develop skills such as collaboration, problem solving and decision making.

CAS enables students to enhance their personal and interpersonal development by learning through experience. It provides opportunities for self-determination and collaboration with others, fostering a sense of accomplishment and enjoyment from their work. At the same time, CAS is an important counterbalance to the academic pressures of the DP.

Secondary Student Council

The AISVN Student Council serves and represents the interests of the students of American International School Vietnam (AISVN). The student council helps share ideas, interests, and concerns with teachers and school principals. They also help raise funds for school-wide activities, including social events, community and service learning projects, helping people in need.

The members of the student council serve as the vehicle of communication between the students and the school administration; upholding the AISVN Student Council Constitution, and empowering students through collective involving concerns such as student activities, campus life, and the management of student funds.

The student council shows leadership and integrity in support of the students and within the guidelines set forth by its Constitution.
