Visit of Shri Ram School, India

The Shri Ram School, a prestigious institution from New Delhi, India, recently made a historic visit to Tiger Kloof Educational Institution in Vryburg, South Africa. This visit marks a significant milestone as it is the first time an Indian school delegation has visited Tiger Kloof to engage primarily in service work. Both schools are esteemed members of the Round Square network, an association that emphasizes holistic education through its six IDEALS pillars: Internationalism, Democracy, Environmentalism, Adventure, Leadership and Service.

The Service Pillar - The late Mr David Matthews, a visionary leader and educator, introduced the Service pillar to the Round Square IDEALS. His belief in the transformative power of service work has inspired countless students to contribute positively to society. The Service pillar encourages students to engage in community service, fostering empathy, social responsibility and a commitment to making a difference.

Shri Ram School’s Visit - The delegation from Shri Ram School were warmly welcomed by the Tiger Kloof community. Their visit had a profound impact on all of us. For the Shri Ram students, the experience offered a unique opportunity to immerse themselves in a different culture and contribute meaningfully to a community abroad. For Tiger Kloof, the presence of an international delegation reinforced the global nature of the Round Square network and the shared commitment to the IDEALS.

As the Shri Ram School delegation prepares to fly back to India over the weekend, the bonds formed and the lessons learned will undoubtedly leave a lasting impression on all participants. This visit exemplifies the spirit of Round Square, where service, cultural exchange and mutual learning come together to create a richer educational experience.

Thank you @gladysdaphnevisser and Mrs Shivani Mandan

The legacy of Mr David Matthews and his emphasis on service continues to inspire students worldwide to make a positive impact on their communities and beyond.
