Sense of Responsibility

Round Square Explorers discover in themselves a sense of personal, moral, ethical, social and civic duty. They become aware of their moral obligations to themselves, others, their community and society in general.

Consideration of community, cultural, economic and environmental issues instils a desire to effect positive change to the betterment of society over personal gain.

A commitment to enact justice, and combat injustice, leads students to seek and implement solutions to ethical, community and social problems.

At a personal level, they recognise, correct and learn from mistakes, accepting accountability for their actions and taking pride in personal effort and performance.
