"Tell me and I forget
Teach me and I remember
Involve me, and I learn"
The SABIS® Student Life Organization (SLO) is the heart of the school and a pillar of the SABIS® Educational System. It is a student-led mini-society that empowers students to get involved in the day-to-day experience at their school and offers countless academic, social, and emotional benefits for everyone involved.
Through the organization’s nine departments, students have the power to make a real difference in their school and their community. SLO students have the ability to organize academic and social events, host games and challenges, plan athletic activities, participate in the Yearbook preparations, explore new skills, help academic standards, start clubs, raise awareness on important subjects, stand up for important causes, and much more.
By taking on this active role, students learn to take responsibility for their emotional, social, and moral growth as individuals as well as members of a larger community. The real-life experiences students are exposed to help foster their personal development as well as provide them with a platform to acquire and refine skills, attitudes, and attributes that give them a huge advantage in university and beyond.
Some of these essential life skills include:
- Critical thinking
- Grit & Resilience
- Empathy & Tolerance
- Communication skills
- Team Work
The SLO is not just an optional extracurricular activity, it is also integrated into students’ schedules as a weekly period, called the SLO period, which brings many of the activities into the classroom for the benefit of all students.
