What is Round Square?
Round Square is an international network of schools, consisting of over 200 schools from 50 countries all over the world. It was founded in 1966 by Kurt Hahn. The organization aims to educate and encourage students to make positive changes in the world and contribute to society.
Round Square schools work together to motivate and equip young people to understand and respond to some of the world’s biggest challenges. After joining Round Square, Global Public School has participated in many national and international events. We were very ecstatic to be a part of the following events:
CGS Virtual Conclave:
The CGS Virtual Conclave was conducted by Chittagong Grammar School, Bangladesh, on the virtual platform. It took place across three days, on the 19th, 20th, and 21st of November, 2021. It was an amazing opportunity for our students to meet eminent personalities from around the world, such as Ms Farin Daulah, an expert mental health practitioner, Ms Humaira Khan, an entrepreneur in the field of fashion, and Ms Heidi Levine, an accomplished and courageous photojournalist.
The participants also took part in multiple baraza discussions, joined debates about ethical dilemmas, created artwork together, and even solved a murder mystery!
IVC Virtual Symposium:
The IVC Virtual Symposium - hosted by CCH Indus Civilization Society, Pakistan - occurred on 18th December 2021. The event comprised of many discussions on the theme “Conservation of our Cultural Heritage”.
There were two participants from Global Public School. They presented and discussed about what we can do to conserve our heritage, as the youth of today. Afterwards, they also participated in an open discussion on the event as a whole.
Eunoia was an event hosted by Seth Anandram Jaipuria School, Kanpur, on 22nd December 2021. It was attended by 96 students from 16 schools, including 6 students from Global Public School. The event was a conference primarily based on SDG 17: Partnership For The Goals.
After an eye-opening presentation by Dr Paritosh Basu, the participants were put in separate breakout rooms, where they had discussions on how the Goal can be achieved.
