The adventure day will involve a visit to the ancient city Mandu. The city of Mandu is located in the present day Dhar district situated in the Malwa region of the central Indian state of Madhya Pradesh. Perched atop a 20 square km plateau, the ruined city is not only endowed with beautiful natural scenery, but also occupies a strategically important location in the landscape. Mandu was a key fort at least 1,500 years ago and is also the home of the famous Jahaz Mahal.
For the service day delegates will volunteer at NGOs in and around Indore like the Indore Deaf Bilingual Academy or the Indore Cancer Foundation hospital.
Relay race: Delegates will have the opportunity to take part in a 7K relay race with a blade runner.

Student flag bearers
We kindly ask that all schools appoint one student flag bearer to present their school flag at the opening and closing ceremonies. If you haven't already done so, please identify your flag bearer on the student’s registration form. We recommend that you nominate the same student for both the opening and closing ceremonies.
Please bring your school flag with you in your hand luggage and submit it at registration so it can be prepared for the Opening Ceremony in good time. No need to bring flag poles or ties, we will provide these for you.
There will be a rehearsal before the opening ceremony, so please ensure that your flag bearer signs in promptly at the registration desk and he/she will be shown where to be for the rehearsal.
Student cultural performance
The Student Cultural Performance is an evening of entertainment and a showcase of talent. The event celebrates the diversity of the Round Square network and our school's rich cultural heritage. Students perform by themselves or as part of a group and the performance is as creative as the student and can include singing, dancing, martial arts, movement, drama, comedy or musical instruments!
All schools attending the conference are encouraged to represent their region and to offer a short cultural. Each region may present a maximum of 20 minutes of cultural items. If you are interested in participating in the performance evening, then please contact your Regional Representative for more information:
