This reflects the philosophy of “International Baccalaureate Organisation” and the “Round Square”, another association 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.
In Junior School, international understanding is fostered through introduction to foreign languages from Kindergarten, and making new friends when students from Tezukayama Gakuin Elementary School, Japan come to visit every two years. As a member of the Round Square Association, we are fully involved in service and project work in conjunction with other schools from all over the world.
Our Leadership program and the Students Representative Council promotes student leadership and engenders a sense of purpose and empathy. Meanwhile an engaging, challenging but fun excursion program sees students of all ages extend their boundaries. Whether this is a trip to the fire station for Transition, kayaking and wall-climbing during a week long camp to Lake Keepit, our students and learn more about themselves, as well as the world in which they live.
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.
