The IDEALS in our school
St George’s Grammar School embraces the six foundational pillars of the Round Square Philosophy namely; internationalism, democracy, environmentalism, adventure, leadership and service into the ethos and teaching curriculum of our school. This is made possible by creating opportunities for every student in our school to develop the potential that already exists within each of them. This is done through effective subject teaching, class adventure camps, River Rafting down the Orange River, community service initiatives, servant leadership opportunities through Matric Portfolios and the Round Square Committee, democratic practice through the Student Representative Council, environmental sustainability and awareness by the Green Committee, Exchange Programmes for Grade 10 students, conferences for students – both locally and internationally and Round Square Service Projects.
