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 more information about Round Square please visit the Round Square website.

Conferences

Our School is a full regional member of Round Square and students can nominate to participate in International and Regional Conferences. Each year our students also have the opportunity to be part of the Australasian and South East Asian conferences. These are planned for various age groups, with yearly opportunities for students in Year 5, Year 8 and 9 and another for senior students in Year 10 or 11.

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.

Exchanges

Our Year 6 and 8 students can participate in two week exchanges within Australia with other regional member schools. Year 10 and 11 students can participate in international exchanges for 6 to 10 weeks. Students have had exchanges to schools in Germany, Japan, France, Canada, England, South Africa and India.
