At TAS, these IDEALS are the backbone of our leadership, service and adventure philosophy and expressed in the following way:
International understanding develops through involvement of exchange students, the employment of overseas gap students and participation in annual overseas conferences.
Democracy is expressed through the student voice heard in the prefect body, restorative justice procedures, sports and disiplanary council, student driven clubs and social activities, and feedback to teachers and other staff.
Adventure activities, in the outdoors program and in voluntary expeditions, will continue to develop as a signature element of the TAS program.
Leadership from students is developed through formal and informal leadership opportunities, from the boarding house to sporting field, from the cadet program to student clubs.
Service is encouraged to be part of every student’s life. This includes local service as well as opportunities for Christian service in Australia and overseas.
The purpose of the week is to bring the Round Square IDEALS to life through a range of real and genuine experiences that are not encountered through the regular curricular and co-curricular programs.
