SILC Student Leadership Conference Dubai 2020-AIS



Dear AIS Students and Parents,Australian International School | Sharjah Education Guide

We would like to inform you about the Dubai Student Leadership Conference taking place on November 20th and 21st at the Al Habtoor Polo Resort in Dubai. This one or two day event is open to all students ages 11 to 17 and is a great opportunity for students to develop leadership, team and life skills in a fun and dynamic way, fully following covid-19 protection measures.

The conference programme is new and great for students we have already worked with as well as those who have never worked with us before. SILC Academy had the pleasure of welcoming AIS students at our Swiss Leadership Camp last year for a popular memorable school trip. We were also happy to receive a considerable number of AIS students at our 2019 Dubai conference. We look forward to welcoming you again at the 2020 edition of the event this November!

Conference participants will enjoy a series of educational workshops, fun team games and experiential challenges, while meeting and networking with young people from other schools.

This unique experience is based on the engaging workshops and camps SILC Academy have been running for many top private schools around the world, alongside effective measures developed to ensure that students stay safe and healthy.

One or two day programme for new and returning students

Students can choose to join for one or two days on Friday November 20th and/or Saturday November 21st. Each day is designed around a brand new programme including engaging workshops and amazing team games and challenges, all run following Covid-19 protection rules.

No pre-existing knowledge or prior experience is necessary for either day, and both days are open to all students with a completely new programme to last year’s.

Day 1: Goal Setting & Time Management Workshop
Students learn strategies to help them accomplish their goals by looking at their relationships with others, their achievement in school, and their accomplishments in the community as well as looking forward to future studies and workplaces.

Day 2: Communication & Conflict Management
Explore the key components of connecting with others, using simple techniques to better understand each other and to improve communication by focusing on listening skills and how to place yourself in someone else’s shoes. Students learn to recognise the five primary responses to conflict, look at how they manage conflict, and explore resolution strategies in different situations.

Amazing venue, new activities and fully catered programme

This exciting one or two-day fully catered event will take place at the beautiful Al Habtoor Polo Resort next to Academic City and Sillicon Oasis. Participants will enjoy meeting new and returning students over great entertainment, delicious food and healthy drinks.
