Round Square

Round Square

DAIS joined Round Square in March 2008 as a Regional Member (South Asia & Gulf Region). As an acknowledgement of our work based on the Round Square philosophy, our school was awarded Global Membership of Round Square in April 2010. The school's overarching aim is to help every child grow to their full potential and develop as a whole person, which distinctly aligns with Round Square's six pillars - International Understanding, Democracy, Environment, Adventure, Leadership, and Service (IDEALS).

These Round Square IDEALS are incorporated into our curriculum in multi-dimensional ways. The School aspires to continue to build on these precepts and expand and refine them on a continuous basis so that every child is encouraged and supported to develop a wholesome personality. Round Square continues to be an integral part of student life at DAIS.

The RSSCC (Round Square Student Council Chair) coordinates, plans and organises activities, and executes events across different sections of the school in coordination with the Student Council body of DAIS. The hectic pace of Round Square activities is greatly possible due to the unending hard work and diligence of the Round Square Core Student Team members, who form the backbone of all Round Square events. They continue to be inspirational to their peers and generate enthusiasm about Round Square and its philosophies throughout the student community.

The Round Square motto is
There is more in you than you think
"I regard it as the foremost task of education to insure the survival of these qualities: an enterprising curiosity, an undefeatable spirit, tenacity in pursuit, readiness for sensible self-denial, and above all, compassion"
- Kurt Hahn, Founder – Round Square.
