From 8th to 11th August, Stanley Ho East Asia College (SHEAC) organized a four-day Student Leadership Program (SLP) for her student leaders to prepare for the new academic year. The Program encompassed a series of workshops and activities that helped student leaders realize the mission and goals of the University’s Residential College (RC) system, and equip with necessary practical skills and soft skills to lead and serve their fellow SHEAC students. A total of 40 student leaders, including Resident Tutors (RTs), Resident Assistants (RAs), House Association Executives, Officer and Working Group Chairs, participated in the program.
College Master Prof. Iu Vai Pan welcomed new generation of student leaders of SHEAC and gave opening remarks to kick off the SLP. Practical workshops covered such diversified topics as basic counselling skills, roles of student leaders in RC, college policies and procedures, skills of organizing student activities and proposal writing, and planning and presentations of freshmen orientation activities. All of these were conducted via group discussions, presentations, sharing, peer feedback and other interactive learning activities. The student leaders could also learn from each other, especially as experienced leaders would share their personal experiences to other less experienced leaders.
Built around the theme of “Together Everyone Achieves More”, a series of ice-breaking and team-building sessions were conducted to help its student leaders foster their rapport and team spirit. A “Team Challenge” comprising a selection of team competitions was designed to challenge their creativity, communication, teamwork and leadership awareness. Four teams were formed to score points from seven different team competitions. Their final scores would determine their ranking in the “Team Challenge”.
The SLP ended on a high note on the last day with kin-ball team sports activities and friendly matches, and a formal closing dinner at St Regis Hotel. Through a series of learning activities and friendly matches of kin-ball, not only did the student leaders have fun, but also they have become more aware of the importance of joint effort and leadership.
At the closing dinner, the student leaders shared their common goals, and expectations on own leadership positions and personal growth. They also expressed that they have become much more familiar and developed trust with each other, and built up a stronger sense of responsibility. They are all eagerly looking forward to welcoming new and returning students, as well as the forthcoming challenges and opportunities in the new semester.
For the coming semester, SHEAC has 8 Resident Tutors (RTs) and 20 Resident Assistants (RAs) formed into six floor groups respectively responsible for the pastoral care of student residents on each floor of the College. The House Association is led by three Executives, an Officer and six Chairs respectively for five specialized Working Groups. The details about these student bodies and the student leaders can be found on the official website of SHEAC at https://sheac.rc.um.edu.mo/.
