IDEALS

Round Square schools share a passion for experiential learning.  Together we work hard to ensure that our pupils have every opportunity to achieve in ways and to levels beyond their perceived limits.

We also believe that in order to prepare for adult life, young people must be encouraged to discover and embrace the similarities and differences between cultures and nationalities in ways that promote meaningful and lasting understanding, tolerance and respect.

The Round Square approach doesn’t focus on what is taught but rather how learning takes place. It recognises that learning is most effective when it is practical, cross-cultural and collaborative, and when it is infused through a broad spectrum of inter, extra and co-curricula activities.

In joining the Round Square Network, member schools make a commitment to embedding our shared IDEALS throughout every learning activity within the school.

 

There is more to us than we know. If we can be made to see it, perhaps for the rest of our lives we will be unwilling to settle for less
