The Round Square delegates came back to Thailand on the Friday 6th of October, after a week full of adventures, discoveries and inspirational speeches at the International Conference in Cape Town, South Africa.
The first day of the Conference brought together 1,000 young people from more than 50 countries. In the spirit of Africa, the event opened with all the students and adults taking part in percussion and drumming performance. The Regent’s flag was proudly carried across the stage as we took part in the welcome ceremony. Music and dance formed the basis of the remainder of the ceremony as the young people from the three host schools entertained everyone.
The following days were just as rewarding with more inspirational speakers, IDEALS events activities and surprising food discoveries, namely the traditional South African barbecue (called a Braai).
With educational programs and trips like these, we want our students to be exposed to new cultures and exchange with people from all over the world. Here at The Regent’s International School Bangkok, we are sure that this trip has given our students the opportunity to broaden their knowledge.
We hope they will keep in touch with their new friends and save great memoirs from the Round Square International Conference in Cape Town, South Africa.
