6 students along with a teacher escort went to Indian High School, Dubai to attend the International Round Square Conference. It was held from 20th to 23rd December 2015. The theme of the conference was `Leadership and Adventure’. In all 18 schools participated in this conference. On the day of arrival, there was an ice-breaking session. Each day, a key note speaker was selected to speak on the theme and it was followed by three Barraza sessions in which the groups were shuffled. The main purpose was to ensure the participation of each and every student who was engaged in various activities and discussions. Outdoor activities were there daily post lunch. On the first day there was a 15 km long Desert Safari in Range Rover cars which was an exhilarating experience for everyone. On reaching the camp in the midst of sand dunes the students had a sumptuous meal while they listened to soulful Arabic music. On the second day Sky Trail was planned and everyone enjoyed the awe-inspiring activity. A city tour was organised on the same evening. The last outdoor activity was trekking and the boys drove 150 kms to reach a place called Fujera as there was no proper place for trekking in Dubai. Last day’s keynote speaker was the CEO of Indian High School, Mr. Ashok Kumar, who spoke on Leadership. His talk was very interactive and motivating. As part of the closing ceremony each school presented a cultural programme. Finally the boys returned back home with lots of memories of an unforgettable experience.
