Palmer Trinity School (PTS) students Helena Evans, Hope Franklin, Isabella Gomez, Christopher Hudson, Brooke Kleber, and Nicolas Rey recently traveled to Cape Town, South Africa as delegates of the Round Square Global Conference “Unite to Ignite the Fire Within.” The conference’s objective was to encourage young delegates from around the world to embrace diversity and ignite global change.
PTS students were hosted by families of students attending St. George’s Grammar School in Cape Town.
In addition to attending the conference, representatives of Palmer Trinity accepted a full global membership flag on behalf of the School. A King Constantine Medal will soon be awarded at Palmer Trinity’s next Upper School Awards Night to the student who most embodies the Round Square IDEALS of learning — Internationalism, Democracy, Environmentalism, Adventure, Leadership and Service.
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.
Palmer Trinity is one of 11 global school members of Round Square in the United States.
