Internationalism and RS Conferences

In 2016, we attended conferences in Morocco, South Africa and India; following academic year saw us travel to Switzerland, Kenya and again to South Africa.  In 2018 we  hosted our own conference, and this, like all the others, was organised by the students.  The philosophy of Round Square is that the teachers are there to facilitate only.  These conferences expose our students to different countries and ways of life, where they realise that the similarities between young people the world over outnumber their differences, and that their ideas can change the world.  Conferences always include elements of service and adventure, and debates between the students inspired by exciting keynote speakers.  There is also plenty of time built in to get under the skin of the country they are visiting.  Our students competed to be allowed to represent the school.

Our cultural council is charged with bringing the outside world into the school, keeping their contemporaries informed of news events and national, international and religious celebrations, and organising school functions to bring these occasions to life.
