Trips & Conferences

As a Round Square school, we ask our students to make a commitment beyond academic excellence.  We ask them to be aware of personal development and, as democratic citizens, their local and global responsibilities.

    This year we are running our fourth annual YRS Leadership Institute, with the theme “Spark the Leader Within You”.

    Through workshops students will explore, recognize, and develop their current leadership qualities they already exhibit at school and to our community

    Students will build support among peers and begin to articulate plans for how to take on further leadership roles

    Students and leaders will collaborate in the planning of upcoming YRS events and initiatives.

    This opportunity will be open to interested grade 8 and 9 Round Square members.
