IDEALS Club (Year 5 and Year 6)

Inspired by MLC School’s Round Square membership, the IDEALS Club is a group where students have the opportunity to better understand the world around them through the lens of the six Round Square IDEALS:

    • Internationalism
    • Democracy
    • Environmentalism
    • Adventure
    • Leadership
    • Service

 

This newly formed Junior School club will see our girls collaborate to unpack and understand issues that we face both locally and globally by capitalising on our connections with other Round Square schools. Our girls will use their newfound understanding to advocate and enact positive change within the School and wider community.

 

Each term we will view a new topic through the lens of the Round Square Discovery Framework.
