The IDEALS in our school

The Round Square IDEALS serves as an umbrella system for all activities in the school. It endorses the culture that every learner actively participates in the following programmes through collaboration with other schools in the region:

We are a leadership academy, thus leadership is a powerful dynamic in our school culture as it is employed in all daily tasks from the classroom to the dorms where the girls live.

What being a Round Square school means to us

Being a Round Square school means that the OWLAG community participates in creating a balanced environment for all its members and that all community members are encouraged to live by the IDEALS.

Being a Round Square school supports our vision which is the development of a new generation of dynamic women leaders, who by virtue of their unique education, will lead the enduring transformation of their communities and country.
