The goal of Maaslandcollege is to educate students to become open minded (world) citizens with a broad interest and a holistic view of the world around them. To this end you are all required to keep a C.A.S.E. in which you document how you have worked on achieving this goal. The C.A.S.E. serves as a portfolio that has to meet certain standards in order to move on. The point is to get you to open up to (new) possibilities, seek out opportunities and set yourself challenges in an ever-changing world. C.A.S.E. is an acronym for Creativity, Action, Service and European and International Orientation.
This could be anything creative. From a workshop ‘still-life painting’, participating in a (school) play or visiting a music festival. The idea is that you stimulate the (creative) mind and through this also work on your academic skills. Thinking ‘outside the box’ and creative thinking skills have proved to also benefit academic achievements.
Action is about an active attitude in life. You are challenged to seek out activities that also benefit a healthy life. Try another sport than you are already doing by joining friends to their training or try-out for another sport. Or join a (school) sports tournament or workshop. Academic achievements and a healthy, sportive, life benefit each other.
Service is about helping and lending a hand. We ask you to be open to help fellow students, your next-door neighbour or who- or whatever might need help. Services that might strike your fancy include the promotion of our school to primary schools, the organisation of (sports) events, raising money for charity, etc.
European and International Orientation (EiO)
Any student of bilingual education should be comfortable in international settings. International developments matter and shape the world we live in. That is why we deem this category of special importance.
