ROUND SQUARE AT ST GEORGE'S
Round Square is a global network of 180 innovative schools, in 50 countries and on six continents, that share a passion for experiential learning and character education. Based around the six IDEALS of Internationalism, Democracy, Environmentalism, Adventure, Leadership and Service, membership in the Round Square network offers schools a framework for excellence and continuous improvement, collaborative opportunities and shared experiences with like-minded peers from around the world.
St George's is the only Round Square school in Namibia and has been a global member of the Round Square organisation since 2013.
The Benefits of Round Square
As a Round Square member school, the benefits for students are enormous as they have the opportunities to participate in exchanges, conferences, and service projects abroad. Additionally, the pillars of the six IDEALS root their education in an international context, shaping them into global citizens, well before they leave Namibia to further their education.
