Round Square IDEALS
All Round Square schools share six IDEALS: Internationalism, Democracy, Environment, Adventure, Leadership and Service. These IDEALS are embedded in Scotch Oakburn College’s teaching and activities, where they support student leadership opportunities, community service opportunities, engagement with Outdoor Education and the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, exchanges, and representation at conferences.
Round Square provides Scotch Oakburn College students with an immensely valuable layer of opportunities that speak to students on a level that goes well beyond the classroom, stage and sporting fields. The common relationship with other Round Square schools from all around Australia and across the world plays out through life-changing exchanges available to Years 8 to 12, and extraordinary conferences and service trips that are available to Years 5 to 12.
We are also extremely fortunate to have on staff the Round Square Schools’ Support Director for Australasia and East Asia and as such, are particularly well positioned to benefit from the full range of opportunities this extraordinary organisation offers.
