The past week has been an awesome experience for six Middle Schoolers (and their escort) as they enthusiastically embraced the Round Square Conference at The Doon School in Dehradun, Northern India. While the conference theme related to the leadership and service IDEALS mainly, all six pillars were well and truly being lived. There were 154 students from 22 schools and only two delegations were not Indian Schools.
