The IDEALS in our school

The philosophy of Round Square is a perfect vehicle in which to structure holistic programs that build character, competencies and life-learning attributes in our students. At present, students engage in many aspects which make up the IDEALS of Round Square; however, a focused and thoughtful approach to the opportunities given to the Flinders community through the lens of the IDEALS will enhance the outcomes and the character development which is vital in today’s education. To enable students to grow and develop in a manner which engenders confidence, global awareness and empathy is paramount while programs which invite challenge, leadership and service will serve to benefit not only our College community but the wider world in the years ahead.

What being a Round Square school means to us

To us Round Square denotes challenge, opportunity, global awareness and contribution. It provides a framework of connection, aspiration and collegiality. To be part of a network that promotes such philosophies enables our students to learn from others, to be part of something that is bigger than themselves and to develop skills and attributes which will serve them well throughout their lives. Staff at the College will also gain from and contribute to the IDEALS of Round Square. Finally, it is important that the parent community is aware of the RS IDEALS as their support of the College’s approach and their children’s engagement will benefit the development of the connections with Round Square.
