This reflects the philosophy of Round Square, an organisation of schools from around the world that share a philosophy of personal growth through international understanding, student involvement in decision making, stewardship of the environment, adventure, leadership and service to others.
TAS makes no apology for the ensuring that all students, from Junior School onwards, engage in programs that will engage and inspire them to go beyond their expectations. In Year 6, Bush Skills offers a hands-on introduction to the great outdoors. All students in Year 7 take part in Rangers, a program that will introduce them to Cadets (Years 8-10).
All of these also have a service component, engaging students with those less fortunate than themselves. Other service programs include a partnership with the neighbouring Minimbah Aboriginal Primary School based around weekly visits to read and play with students; the annual Service in Sydney/Katoomba Youth Christian Convention during which students help the Exodus Foundation feed the homeless, and pilgrimages to St Christopher’s Orphanage in Fiji (Year 8 students), and the McKean Rehabilitation Institute for leprosy sufferers and Agape HIV Orphanage both in Chiang Mai, Thailand.
