Friends of the Academy
Friends of OASB provides an avenue for families and friends to be more involved in Academy life and for the school to receive regular feedback from parents, as we grow, over the coming years. Friends of OASB has been divided into different channels so that families can be involved with the elements that most suit them. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch (Rebecca.Quiney@oasissouthbank.org)
Events Committee - We will meet once a term to discuss upcoming fundraising events. Depending on how much time you would like to commit, you could either help to lead events or simply help with running the event on the day. This year, we organised a stall at the Oasis Christmas Fayre and a Caribbean dinner party for friends and family and raised over £1,500 for the Oasis Waterloo Food Bank
Steering Group - We will meet twice throughout the year to discuss the development of the school. This is a chance for parents to provide feedback on the year and suggestions for improvements in the future. This will usually take place at 5:30 – if you cannot attend but would like to be kept up-to-date with the agenda and minutes from the meeting, please get in touch (Rebecca.Quiney@oasissouthbank.org)
Volunteering - Whether you want to assist with our morning reading program (Drop Everything And Read), accompany students going on trips or help to run an enrichment session, we would love to have your help and support. This could be on a regular basis or for just a few sessions. For more information, please get in touch (Rebecca.Quiney@oasissouthbank.org)
Attending Events - We host a range of events throughout the academic year which are made far more special by the involvement of our families. At the end of each half term, come and celebrate the success of our students at our Celebration Assemblies (last Friday of every Half-Term 08:00 for KS3 and 08:45 for KS4), take part in our annual families Vs. staff football competition or come and watch the school musical, School of Rock, in July.
The Waterloo Hub - OASB is also part of a wider community hub that host a variety of activities for families to take part in. Please contact Felicity.Maries@oasisuk.org for any further Hub details or pop in and see us at the Hub Coffee Shop on Kennington Road to find out more about what Oasis does for the local community and how you can get involved.
