LCS is proud to have been the first Canadian member of Round Square.
In keeping with the educational philosophy of its founder, Round Square holds at its core six IDEALS, which stand for: Internationalism, Democracy, Environment, Adventure, Leadership and Service. Every year in the fall, the annual Round Square International Conference brings together delegates from member schools for a week-long series of guest speakers, excursions, adventure and cultural activities, and discussion groups. Thise annual International Conference (along with Pre- or Post-Conference excursions) provides a wonderful opportunity for LCS students to get to know and work with other young people from around the world.
In addition to attending past international conferences in Germany, Kenya, Australia, Scotland, the U.S. and India, student delegates from Lakefield also regularly attend the Round Square Americas Regional Conferences in the spring - hosted annually by one of the Round Square member schools in North or South America. Participation in Round Square conferences and service projects truly helps to instil an international perspective in our student body.
