The IDEALS in our school

Christ’s College primarily uses its student committee system to implement the Round Square IDEALS and the committees are required to work within the Round Square framework in terms of democratic processes, leadership, adventure and service. The committees are: Academic, Service, Environment, International/Round Square, Student Welfare, Technology/eLearning, Arts/Culture and Sport. We also encourage student voice and democracy through our Student Senate. ‘Adventure’ is catered for through sport, outdoor education, the boarding activities programme and field trips. We are also developing links with Round Square schools via exchange programmes and curricular collaboration.

What being a Round Square school means to us

Christ’s College wants to embrace a global perspective and it is essential for our students to see their connections to the wider world. New Zealand has a commitment to biculturalism and is also developing an increasingly multicultural society. Christ’s College wants to reflect this diversity in its student body and celebrate cultural richness. The Round Square Ideals complement our school values of spirituality, learning, respect, compassion, honesty, justice and stewardship.
