A slice of international life with Junior Round Square

04 Nov 2023

From a sushi-making challenge to the global fun of musical chairs and food for all tastes on Upper, Junior Round Square Week has brought an international flavour to College life.

On Monday, the tasty sushi-making challenge – featuring three boys representing each House – set the scene for sharing new skills. Judged by Matua Keri Campbell, Ms Elaine Tang, and Ms Maude Turgeon-Leblanc and organised by the Junior Round Square Committee, the challenge attracted an eager audience, with Julius House taking the sushi honours, followed by Richards and Flower’s House.

During the week, the new-taste experience continued at the international food stall as the boys sampled iced lemon tea and Korean Pepero white cookies. However, crunching on cucumber-flavoured crips took some convincing. The boys were also rewarded with some sweet treats for following the Round Square International Instagram page.

On Thursday, the boys gathered for a special Junior Round Square-led Assembly, where students were encouraged to make the most of the Round Square schools network. The pace then stepped up as international sounds rang out around the Quad for musical chairs.

The action-packed week wrapped up with an international quiz on Friday.
