The first batch of Australian International School Malaysia Year 12 students recently completed a week long Trinity College Personal Leadership Program at Melbourne University. The partnership with Melbourne University is an excellent opportunity for AISM’s senior students to explore leadership capabilities, focus on academic goals, and enhance their teamwork and collaborative skills.

During the trip, students undertook a range of learning experiences designed to explore their individual potentials and unique talents focusing on leadership, personal development, problem-solving and teambuilding skills. Students were also treated to drama communication sessions, rock climbing, and a tour of Melbourne University and the city sights.

“The program gave us an insight into the ups and downs of university life and is especially relevant to us during our final year of schooling,” says Praveen Revi Chandran, who also attended a two-week residential summer school programme in Oxford University two years ago.

AISM believes strongly in providing students with an ‘holistic education’ that goes far beyond the rhetoric so commonly associated with this phrase. This program is the culmination of a range of learning experiences that occur outside the classroom, in the community, in service of others, as team members and mentors and as leaders of the School community.
