Palmer Trinity School has announced that four of its students — Benjamin Arnold, Hannah Baron, Tyler McCray and Sara Ramos — have been selected to be delegates at the Jan. 24-30, 2018 Young Round Square Global Conference in Dehradun, India, the capital city of the state of Uttarakhand.
Round Square Global Conferences bring together more than 1,000 students from 40 countries for an exchange of cultures and views as well as in-depth discussions on a wide range of topics. The theme of next year’s conference will be “Escape the Ordinary,” and is aimed at empowering delegates to free themselves of all conventional and dictated thoughts and beliefs.
“We are extremely proud of Ben, Hannah, Tyler, and Sara for having been selected to participate in this life-changing experience. We are confident they will represent both Palmer Trinity and our community with honor,” said Patrick Roberts, head of school.
Palmer Trinity is one of 11 global school members of Round Square in the United States.
Round Square is a not-for-profit network of schools in 40 countries on five continents that share a passion for experiential learning built around six IDEALS of learning: Internationalism, Democracy, Environmentalism, Adventure, Leadership and Service.
Round Square Students are encouraged to discover and develop their own capabilities through a range of experiences, activities, collaborative projects and challenges, both within and outside the curriculum, including social service projects, exchanges and conference participation.
