Welcome from Scotch Oakburn College
Updated: Jan 9, 2020
On behalf of the Scotch Oakburn College community I welcome you to our College in Launceston Tasmania for what promises to be a wonderful conference; Take Less, Be More.
Tasmania is the southern-most state in Australia and is a haven for wildlife, abounds with natural beauty, has stunning beaches, mountains and forests, all in a unique landscape. Our conference will give you a taste of all the natural wonders of our state as well as engage you in topical issues via our guest speakers and baraza groups. Beyond the daily conference activities, your homestay will give you a taste of Australian hospitality and in conjunction with the evening program, we will make sure that you feel right at home in no time at all.
Delegates will have the opportunity to experience Launceston and Tasmania during the Service and Adventure days – we have prepared a varied program so I’m sure you’ll find options to suit. A team-based race around Launceston will familiarise you with much of what our city has to offer. The sustainability focused service day gives delegates the
opportunity to make a difference at a local level by interacting with projects that are happening in our region, whilst recognising their connection to the larger issues facing our world. Adventure Day will provide you the opportunity to choose an adventure that excites and inspires you to challenge yourself and step outside your comfort zone.
Our conference activities are also designed to provide opportunities to further unpack the Round Square IDEALS and the 12 Discoveries of the Round Square Discovery Framework. These dispositions are important for all delegates, now and into the future, to gain the most from their learning experiences.
I am confident that the collective impact of the conference experiences will inspire us all to ‘Take Less, Be More’.
The team at Scotch Oakburn College believe that we have put together a conference that will give you, our Round Square family members, a genuine appreciation and understanding of Australia and sense of belonging, and we can’t wait to welcome you to our beautiful country.
