Overview

St Philip's College is a member of Round Square, a prestigious association of international schools which share a commitment beyond academic excellence to personal development and responsibility through service, challenge, adventure and international understanding.

This educational philosophy was developed by Kurt Hahn who founded Salem School, Gordonstoun School, Outward Bound and the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme.

Membership of the Round Square provides opportunities for St Philip's students to travel as exchange students to other schools in Australia and overseas and to participate in international projects initiated by any of the member schools. Each year staff and students attend the junior and senior Australian schools conference and the international conference.

In 2001 the International Conference was hosted by St Philip's College, in 2006 we hosted the Australasian Regional Conference and in April 2011 we hosted the Junior Australasian Round Square Conference.
