The Conference Theme
This years theme is 'Take less, be more'.
The Host Schools
We are delighted to announce that the RSIC 2020 in Australia will be hosted by Ballarat Grammar, Ivanhoe Grammar School and Scotch Oakburn College.
The three schools will host consecutively.
As in previous years, RS Member schools will be allocated to their host by random draw from within their region to ensure an equal spread of RS regions between the three host schools. To find out who your host school is, please log into the Round Square website and check your school profile page.
Global Member Schools: a standard delegation of two adults and five students.
Candidate Schools that have applied for Global Membership before 25/02/20: a standard delegation of two adults and five students (with the option of a third adult if there will be more than three students in the delegation).
Candidate Schools: a standard delegation of two adults and two students.
Observer Schools (by invitation only): a maximum of two adults and two students.
Waiting list: As with previous years, should you want to secure additional places for your delegation, you may add them to the waiting list. Once the deadline for Letters of Commitment closes, we will release remaining places available to delegates on the waiting list. Delegates on the waiting list are subject to availability.
Student age: At the youngest end of the age range students must at least turn 16 during the academic year (at their own school) in which the RSIC takes place. Delegates that are 15 at the time of the RSIC will only be accepted if they will become 16 before the end of the academic year in which the RSIC falls. Students will be working together in peer groups and the activities are designed for this particular age group. Students under this age will not be accepted.
Please note: Every delegation must include at least as many students as adults and ideally more students than adults. Delegations with more adults than students are not accepted.
AUD $1,465 for Students
AUD $1,680 for adults
