2024 South Africa IDEALS Service Adventure (SAISA)
A Year 10 Opportunity

On Wednesday this week Year 9 students were introduced to the SAISA trip opportunity for 2024. This is a Scotch Oakburn Round Square Service trip that has been running since 2014. This very successful student-driven concept has, over the past nine years, offered students another dimension to the service and adventure opportunities on offer through the College. This innovation was initially designed by students Elliot Brown (’16) and Oskar Bucirde (’16) during their Year 9 year in 2013, in conjunction with me. The experience is designed to incorporate activities that address all of the Round Square IDEALS as well as having an element of exchange through visits to Round Square schools in South Africa. An advantage of this concept is that it is ‘tailor-made’, allowing the participants to have significant input into the specifics of the itinerary.

For more detailed information you will find the first information letter at this link.

If you would like to discuss this opportunity in more detail or express an interest in your child applying for this opportunity, please contact me at or by phone at the College.
