The IDEALS in our school

Our mission statement, core values and the RS IDEALS dovetail well to describe the teaching and learning at St Cyprian’s School. Together they provide the framework for the “hidden curriculum” and inform the co-curricular programme devised to shape character and grow leadership.

Every grade participates in an annual RS Integrated Programme, each of which has been devised to focus on two or more of the IDEALS specifically.  In addition, the school offers well organised, sustainable opportunities for service through community and environmental engagement as an extra mural option. The President’s Award, MUN, Regional and International Conferences, RSIS opportunities and the Student Exchange programme are other ways in which our girls engage with the IDEALS.

What being a Round Square school means to us

Round Square provides the students of St Cyprian’s School with a wonderful basket of opportunities to engage with the world beyond themselves, to know and embrace diversity and to develop a sense of self through challenge and opportunity. The final product of such an education can be seen in their easy assumption of leadership roles. The regional and international relationships provide a new lens upon the world for them, and serve to challenge their thinking, develop habits of service beyond self.
