OAIOS joins the wider Oasis family to celebrate students in National Student Awards 2021
On Friday 9th July, over 260 students in the Oasis Community Learning academy trust were celebrated as part of the Oasis Student Awards ceremony 2021.
The bi-annual celebration of young people across the Oasis family has been a little different this year, with many last minute changes which we have had to adapt to. It has been a challenging journey and one that has tested our strength and determination, but we are so pleased that we were able to provide our students with this opportunity to be celebrated for the amazing things they do, and the fantastic young people they are.
Students were nominated because of their character, the hard work they put in to overcome personal challenges and their voluntary work and commitment to supporting their communities, before and during the pandemic. Today's celebrations began at 12:30 and the selected students from our academy were invited to a prestigious afternoon tea with Miss Lee, academy Principle.
Our students were able to see that they are part of the much wider Oasis family as they joined students from 50 other academies and gathered together to enjoy an afternoon of professional entertainment, including aerial acrobatics and freestyle football, celebrity congratulations messages from television presenters and blockbuster actors from franchises such as Marvel and Harry Potter, and praise from key leaders within the trust.
One of our nominated students told us: "My favourite quote was from Evanna Lynch as Harry Potter is my favourite film, it really was magical and gave me a kick to get out and help again!!"
Well done to all of our nominated students, we hope you enjoyed the celebration today and we want to tell you just how proud we are of the well-rounded, committed young people you are. Congratulations also to all students nominated from across the Oasis family.
