Hosting the 2020 Round Square International Conference at Ballarat Grammar from 13th – 18th September 2020 is such an exciting and amazing opportunity for the Ballarat Grammar community. We are looking forward to showcasing Ballarat Grammar to the world and to ‘give back’ for all of the incredible Round Square experiences we have enjoyed since we have been a RS member school. We will be host to approximately 280 student delegates (16 – 18 years old) and these students will be billeted with Grammar families. From Registrations on Sunday right through to the Closing Ceremony on Friday will have the Ballarat Grammar magic and country hospitality!

 

Conference Theme: Take Less, Be More

Sustainability is a global concern about the livelihood of our future generations and the impact of issues such as the change in climate, populations, resources, social capital and cultural connections. Through a commitment to sustainability and through our ability to solve problems, Round Square students can take a stand, through their own actions to take less and be more.

Learning outcomes:

  • We are communicators with a sense of responsibility that engages compassion and an appreciation for diversity. This allows us to grow our social connections making us happier and healthier;
  • Through an understanding of our place in society, we use teamwork and leadership to ensure all communities have access to economic development that satisfies all basic human needs and rights – education, food and security;

  • Through care, tenacity and inventiveness, we work to ensure our environment is protected, sustained and developed in a changing climate to ensure the earth’s wellbeing; and

  • We learn to be inquisitive, courageous and self-aware through the sharing of stories, knowledge and wisdom. This preserves our countries’ heritage and rich cultures as we learn from our first peoples.
