Round Square

What is Round Square?

Bunbury Cathedral Grammar School is a global member of the Round Square Association. Round Square is founded on the philosophy that a student’s education is so much more than what occurs in the classroom; it also encompasses life experiences and opportunities.

Round Square is based upon six pillars or IDEALS: Internationalism, Democracy, Environment, Adventure, Leadership and Service. We encourage all members of our School to become involved in the Round Square experience. For further information on Round Square please see this short Introduction to Round Square video, or for more extensive information about Round Square please visit the Round Square website.


Our School is a full regional member of Round Square and students can nominate to participate in the Round Square International Conference for students 16 + and Global Conferences for various age groups and smaller delegation sizes. These are annual opportunities for students in Year 5 through to Year 12.

Young Round Square

Young Round Square has been developed to introduce the philosophy to students at an early age. As a school, our students can be involved from a Primary School level from 10 years of age.


Year 6 students have the opportunity to exchange with Radford College in Canberra in conjunction with the Year 6 Canberra tour.

Our Year 8 students can participate in two-week exchanges within Australia with other regional member schools.

Year 10 students can participate in international exchanges for 6 to 10 weeks. Our students have had exchanges to schools in Canada, England, France, Germany, Japan, South Africa, South America and India.


There are different service opportunities facilitated through BCGS or Round Square organisation. Round Square International Service projects are twice annually, July and December, and open to students from around the globe (16+ years of age).

The BCGS run projects usually take place in Cambodia or Thailand and take place in the July holidays.
