The IDEALS in our school

At Rothesay Netherwood School the IDEALS of Round Square are embraced in all facets of the school, from academics to co-curriculars. Celebrations of our diverse community help to promote International awareness, understanding, and most of all empathy. We are heavily involved in the Outward Bound program and are fortunate to have extensive natural resources with which to offer all types of adventures. Through Student Council, Enviro-club, House competitions and frequent service opportunities within our local community and beyond, all members of the school have an opportunity to live by the IDEALS.

What being a Round Square school means to us

Being a Round Square school has enabled RNS students to think outside their regular school activities and connect with students from schools around the world. In this age of social media, fantastic connections have been created and maintained. One of the most amazing parts of being a Round Square school is the collaboration with other schools; this has involved schools connecting both for academic projects and for simply sharing ideas and best practice.
