Action and service has always been shared values of the IB community. Students take action when they apply what they are learning in the classroom and beyond. IB learners strive to be caring members of the community who demonstrate a commitment to service - making a positive difference to the lives of others and to the environment.

Service and action is a required component of the IB MYP and is in line with DAS’s mission statement. At DAS, students are provided with numerous opportunities for service involvement in each year of the programme, which are in turn aligned with the MYP learning outcomes.

All MYP students must fulfil the DAS expectations for participation in community service, which is a requirement of the IB MYP Certificate.
