Bishop Druitt College has formed a new partnership with the internationally recognised Round Square organisation. Round Square is a collective of over 150 schools across the globe that value the ideals of international understanding, democracy, environmental stewardship, adventure, leadership and service. Bishop Druitt College and Round Square will inspire their young people to build capacity in the areas of personal responsibility, resilience, self-discovery in a context that is practical, cross-cultural and collaborative.
Bishop Druitt College and Round Square will provide students with conference opportunities, student exchanges and service opportunities throughout Australasia and across the whole world. ‘This is fantastic news, we are absolutely delighted to be joining the Round Square community,’ said Professor Dr Stuart Smith, Chair of Bishop Druitt College Council’s Education Committee.
‘With only 18 schools representing Australia in the Round Square community we are truly honoured to have been accepted as a candidate school and look forward to developing a long-lasting partnership that benefits our students and our region,’ said Principal Nick Johnstone.
