July 2017:

A group of Year 8 students from the Oasis Academy have been working together to improve their teamwork skills and citizenship knowledge as part of a course provided by CVQO. The group have spent their time learning lifesaving skills, raising over £100 for their chosen charity, Battersea Dogs and Cats Home, and taking part in a range of adventurous activities such as climbing and abseiling. All students have now achieved a BTEC Level 1 qualification following completion of the course which culminated in a Graduation Ceremony in front of friends and family
