Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community

Oasis Online Family Programme

UPDATE: Oasis Hub Waterloo BRAND NEW Online Family Programme!

Try something different this Easter!

We know this is a really strange time for everyone, and can seem both scary and surreal. We are really missing seeing parents and families regularly, and as we know there will be some months before we can resume activity together, we’ve been working out some ways to bring our community together online.  
 
Although we can’t easily see one another face to face at this time, we want you to know that we are here, and in the coming weeks will be providing an online programme that will bring fun, positive and healthy activity, as well as connection, into our homes. 
 
We will do this is a few different ways:  
1. Streaming from Facebook Live 
2. Meet ups on Zoom 
3. You can find lots of resources on our Oasis Academy Johanna Blog for learning and other activities (whether you are at an Oasis school or not!) and Oasis Hub Youth Instagram!
4. Make sure you like our page on Facebook
5. Bespoke Family Support. We’ll be ensuring to stay in connect and support specific families that we are working with across this time.

 

Please get in touch with Felicity if you’d like to find out more, get involved, or need a chance to connect and chat via email at felicity.maries@oasiswaterloo.org

We’re launching our brand new Online Programme to help kick off the Easter Holidays! Time to make the most of getting creative indoors, our limited time outdoors, and connecting together.
 

Our programme has four strands:

1. Take Care

We know this is a difficult time for us all – kids, young people, parents, and whole families – and it’s important to remember to be kind to ourselves and others. So, we’ll be posting a daily challenge, thought, photo or challenge to help you reflect on how you’re doing, keep you motivated, be encouraged, and remind us to take care!

 

2. Stay Healthy

This can be hard when we’re limited to our homes, and only allowed one outing per day. BUT there can be ways to stay healthy, and our videos are created to specifically help you and your family think about how to be creative in our exercise and diet.

Throughout the week, you’ll be able to join our instructors (including a familiar face or two!) to exercise as a family, learn a new active skill like circus or juggling, or do some healthy cooking! These will be posted on as Facebook Events, so make sure to like our page and join the activities you’re interested in live online!

3. Be Creative and Have Fun!

We know that everyone (including parents!) are trying to get to grips with their school work and activities to keep occupied at home. This can be hard when we don’t have lots of resources, or aren’t too sure what to do!

So, to get you connected and keep the kids creative, we’ll be running daily activities for the whole family to join in with.

 

4. Parent Check In

This is crazy! We know. Super-parent, teacher, entertainer, tech-whiz, coach – you’re suddenly expected to be all these things. But it’s not possible! So, we want to make sure parents can have a chance to check in, keep connected, let some of the emotion and challenges out, and support one another.

Your mental and physical health is so important – and is the first thing to get lost when looking after everyone else. We’ll have a few opportunities in the week to join with something just for you – chat over coffee, request a call back from one of our team to just have a listening ear, do a bit of reflection together, and even a chance for some Zumba!

We’ll use Zoom and Facebook to connect – so watch this space, and let us know if you’re interested in connecting. Contact Felicity (Flic) for any more information via email Felicity.Maries@oasiswaterloo.org
