MLC School Hosts the Round Square Discovery Framework

We were proud to host the Round Square Discovery Framework at MLC School. 18 teachers visited our school from across Australia and New Zealand to take part in this initiative.

Round Square is a global network of over 150 schools across 50 countries and six continents who share a passion for character education and experiential learning. Round Square is built around six IDEALS of learning: International Understanding, Democracy, Environmental Stewardship, Adventure, Leadership and Service. Alongside these IDEALS, students are encouraged to explore their learning through 12 DISCOVERIES: Inquisitiveness, Tenacity, Courage, Compassion, Inventiveness, Ability to Solve Problems, Self-Awareness, Sense of Responsibility, Appreciation of Diversity, Commitment to Sustainability, Communication Skills and Teamwork Skills.

The Discovery Framework was held at MLC School on Friday 4 May and Saturday 5 May 2018.

Round Square has been a fixture in MLC School’s co-curricular program, with students from Year 8 to Year 11 having the opportunity to embark on exchanges to other Round Square schools.
