The IDEALS in our school

Scholars are involved in alien bush clearing, tree planting, rhino poaching awareness, bird watching and snare removals from the surrounding bush. Staff are involved in the “Kids in Kruger” program which involves workshops for teachers and scholars in Kruger National Park.

Service is an integral part of Penryn and is home to Penreach – an outreach programme which aids the surrounding disadvantaged schools in terms of teacher workshops, school visits and tutoring.

International affairs are included in the school curriculum and debated extensively. Leadership and democracy go hand in hand at Penryn. Scholar leaders are actively involved in the running of the school and participating in committees.

What being a Round Square school means to us

Round Square gives us the amazing opportunity to go on exchanges and conferences.  This is a truly life changing experience as it gives one the chance to meet and live with people from other parts of the world, to share ideas and to make friendships that will last a lifetime. Round Square breaks down geographical and physical barriers. Round Square ensures that we as a community continually strive to live by the IDEALS as set out by Kurt Hahn.
