Action Defined: Physical exertion contributing to a healthy lifestyle, complementing academic work elsewhere in the Diploma Program.

These are some of the Action CAS activities students do at RHS. They’re not in any particular order and some of them are repeated in the other two categories because they overlap. Hope this gives you an idea or two.
