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 Armidale School is very excited to announce the launch of our new Day Student ‘All-Rounder’ Scholarships. A limited number of scholarships for 50% tuition will be awarded to students who have demonstrated consistent academic achievement and involvement in sport or the creative arts and who would be enthusiastic about the opportunity of a TAS education. New day students entering TAS in Year 9 or above in 2019 are eligible to apply for these entrance scholarships. The closing date for application is Friday 28 September.
