Thrive Student Leaders

Aspiring leaders need great mentors and ample opportunity for collaboration and mutual problem-solving. That’s where the Thrive Student Leaders Symposium comes in. This inter-school student leadership event for students in Grade 7 to 12, started in 2016-17, is hosted by TMS School.

Seminar discussion topics range from how to run and lead a school club, how to run for student council or how to bring an initiative to fruition if you’re not in a leadership role. Like-minded leaders in similar roles, i.e. head prefects or club heads, have time to mingle and work through common challenges. Alumni panels, drawn from independent-school grads at university and beyond, add to the valuable mix of programming and hard-skills development.

Thrive isn’t a set of leadership workshops delivered by adults or high-powered speakers. The event is super-relevant and engaging because it offers student-run sessions for students.
