What are the Round Square IDEALS?

Idealist: “A person who cherishes or pursues high or noble principles, purposes, goals.”

The Round Square community is on a mission to appoint a body of champions whose life stories and achievements will provide a source of inspiration to Round Square students around the world, building their understanding of the Round Square IDEALS and the values they represent. Enlisted by Round Square President, His Majesty King Constantine, our Idealists have been nominated by Round Square’s student body and school membership around the world as individuals whose achievements epitomise the value and spirit of the Round Square IDEALS.

Round Square schools share a passion for experiential learning. Together they work hard to ensure that their pupils have every opportunity to achieve in ways and to levels beyond their perceived limits.

We also believe that in order to prepare for adult life, young people must be encouraged to discover and embrace the similarities and differences between cultures and nationalities in ways that promote meaningful and lasting understanding, tolerance and respect.

The Quest to Find Our Pillar Leaders 

Before half-term, we announced the idea of ‘Pillar Leaders’ to our sixth form students.

In Round Square, there are 6 IDEALS:

International Understanding
Environmental Awareness

We thought it would be a great idea to have 6 pillar leaders that represent each of these IDEALS. These would be members of the sixth form that would be responsible for improving and maintaining their pillar within school. We asked any students interested to send in an application detailing their passion for the pillar and any ideas they may have already. We have received lots of great applications and we are currently in the process of arranging a meeting with our chosen leaders. In the meantime, if you have any thoughts, comments or ideas about how we can develop each pillar at AKS please click the email address below to communicate directly with The Pillar Leader team.
