Round Square is a world-wide association of schools on five continents sharing unique and ambitious goals. Students attending Round Square schools make a strong commitment, beyond academic excellence, to personal development and responsibility.

The Round Square approach promotes six IDEALS of learning: Internationalism, Democracy, Environment, Adventure, Leadership and Service. These are incorporated into the curriculum throughout all member schools.

The College's membership of the Round Square network allows us to organise international student exchanges with other Round Square schools around the world.

Year 9 students have the opportunity to do two week exchanges to Australia, whilst Year 12 students might venture further afield for up to six weeks. They also have the opportunity to participate in local and international community service projects and conferences.

Tasks tackled through the community projects include building schools, classrooms and community centres; building clean water systems for remote hill-tribes or creating and maintaining trails in National Parks. Local materials are used, and teams always work with local people ensuring that they take ownership of the work once it has been completed.
