The SABIS Student Life Organization® (SLO®) is a mini society that gives students the opportunity to assume real life responsibilities. Students who are selected – not elected – manage the SABIS® Student Life Organization® and are called prefects. There are eight different departments that students can become involved in depending on their interests.
Students organize and manage all aspects of SLO®. Initially, students are taught all skills necessary to run their SLO® department by the Student Life Coordinator and eventually, students begin to teach one another. The SLO® empowers students to make a difference by giving them the responsibility and opportunity to develop important life skills including leadership, cooperation confidence, creativity, problem solving, communication, and global citizenship.
All students are encouraged to join our Student Life Organization and take an active part in their education in-and outside of the classroom. Working with school administration and their peers, prefects are an integral piece to education at The International School. They help promote high social and moral values and encourage participation in a wide range of additional activities.
