Character development and citizenship is integrated into our curriculum. We encourage attributes of citizenship in our students within the school environment and in daily life; we foster compassion, integrity, perseverance, involvement, respect and responsibility.
At Rundle we motivate our students to participate in many leadership opportunities provided. Examples of activities for our younger students include reading buddies, or special lunch helpers. In the upper grades, our students take on ambassador and leadership roles through our Prefect and WEB (Where Everyone Belongs) programs.
At the Senior High level, we send many of our emerging leaders to conferences throughout Canada and the United States:
- People to People Leadership Summit: Harvard/Stanford
- National Student Leadership Conference: Medicine & Health Care: UC Berkeley
- National Student Leadership Conference: Film & Fine Arts: UCLA
- Shad Valley - varying host universities
- WISEST - Women in Science and Engineering - U of C
- HYRS -Heritage Youth Researcher Summer Program
- Me to We
Rundle is also committed to fostering global awareness and citizenship and we take great pride in providing a community-minded service learning program. Annually, our students volunteer hundreds of hours through various programs in our local and global communities. Through volunteering efforts, Rundle students become true difference makers and compassionate young citizens.
