School Leaders’ Retreat
The School Leaders' Retreat is a biennial programme for school leaders to hold discussions and take part in common learning experiences. This helps to build a foundation of shared values and create a network of leaders in the Asia-Pacific community. An integral part of the Asia Pacific Schools Initiative (APSI), the School Leaders’ Retreat brings together school leaders with the intent of inculcating an understanding of ‘Leadership through Serene Strength’ and inspiring them to support the students and teachers of their schools. We believe that if schools practice and promote ‘Leadership through Serene Strength’, it will have a multiplier effect and will spread in the community, country and region.
The programme addresses the unique challenges of a school leader in the complex and fast-changing world of learning. Designed specifically for school heads, the programme equips participants with ideas, skills and practices to create and lead collaborative result-oriented teams. Sessions and learning items focus on distinguishing technical and adaptive challenges in running a school, creating alignment and commitment among team members, and nurturing a win-win mindset.
The sessions include engaging activities, reflection, sharing and discussions to co-create insights and learning based on an experiential learning approach.
