Round Square

22 May 2020

Welcome to Round Square NGS!

Every single person at NGS is a Round Square member and they all have access to information, connections and opportunities within our school and with over 200 Round Square Schools worldwide. 

There will be information about exchanges, conferences and learning opportunities as the COVID-19 restrictions begin to ease. Before then we are learning more about what it means to be a Round Square School and a Round Square student! The IDEALS of the Round Square Organisation are internationalism, democracy, environmentalism, adventure, leadership and service. We will be encouraging students to engage and participate in activities designed to help them learn more about themselves and how to adopt a positive growth mindset as a Visible Wellbeing student.

Term 2, 2020 we are focusing on one of the Round Square IDEALS: Environmentalism. 

Round Square schools encourage their students to develop a spirit of Environmentalism: understanding our place in the universe, the forces that shape our surroundings and the impact we have on those surroundings. 

NGS will have top tips for being a student with the spirit of Environmentalism and a weekly picture challenge with a focus and theme around the environment and sustainable living. 

As we go through the Term we will introduce our community to our wonderful Round Square Committee. Each of these students will be just like a Student Representative Council member and open to discuss ideas or projects that we can do within our community and beyond.

We are interested in helping the students of NGS be the best they can be so we can make an impact on our communities locally, nationally and globally.
