At Oasis we understand the importance of educating our young people holistically. We want our students, and our staff for that matter, to become the best version of themselves. Therefore, we incorporate the Oasis 9 Habits into school and work life. But how do we make these habits stick? We explore the neuroscience behind building habits and how our young people can keep the soft skills we know will benefit them for a lifetime.
This week is an exciting week for book lovers as we celebrate World Book Day. On March 1st young people will be coming together to celebrate reading through discussing books, sharing their favourite stories and coming to school dressed as their favourite characters. It is a wonderful occasion to honour all the authors and illustrators out there who work tirelessly to create those meaningful experiences for the readers, worldwide.
Every single one of us is unique. We know that every one of our young people joining Oasis Academy Exemplar will have different life experiences, different aspirations, different backgrounds and different requirements. Some of our students will require extra support to help bridge the gaps in their attainment, whilst others will crave that challenge and further push to think bigger.
The use of social media and the dangers of cyber safety for young people is not a new topic, yet it is an issue that is consistently raising its head. We discuss what can be done to support our young people entering and living in a digital society.
