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. First held during the 2017–2018 school year, this inter-school student leadership event for students in Grade 7 to 12 was hosted by TMS.
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.
CIS Ontario's Thrive Student Leadership Symposium was hosted by Ridley College on November 21, 2022. This was our first CIS Ontario student conference of the year!
