The school’s motto, ‘A world of education… an education for the world!’ puts internationalism at the heart of many of its activities.

The IDEALS in our school

Dainfern College actively participates in every aspect of the RS IDEALS, through global networking, student tours and exchanges, building relationships and caring for the community and environment around us. Our mission is to produce leaders of calibre who will make a positive contribution to society, both locally and globally. Our innovative Leadership Programme prepares students to be critical thinkers with a conscious awareness of what being a leader entails. There is a strong focus on our responsibility to the environment and to the needs of our diverse society and service to others is firmly embedded in all we do.

What being a Round Square school means to us

Being part of Round Square has given students and staff a global perspective and encouraged us to connect with the international community of RS schools. Our activities and values are now intentionally aligned with the IDEALS. For our students, as one of our conference Baraza leaders articulated so well:

Round Square is the melting pot of the world’s next generation of international explorers, democratic activists, environmental visionaries, adventurers, leaders and selfless service-givers: the IDEALS upon which Round Square was forged.
