The final day of the summer school was rounded off with a celebration of our student’s achievements during the course and their time together. The students were joined by their parents for the evening for their Graduation ceremony at the Said Business School as they were awarded their certificated and reminded of some of the high points of their time with us. We were treated to speeches from Jamie, Susanna and Shannon encompassing OSA’s values and how amazing our student’s have been.

It was then time for our students to take the stage as we had speeches from Saim, Lucy, Bella, Angel, Morgane, Srishti and Alex. All spoke with grace and eloquence about their time at OSA and how their course had transformed their learning experience and contributed to their personal development. This made us all immensely proud of our students and their achievements during their time with us! Graduation was rounded off by a hilarious video compiled of clips from throughout the student’s time with us.

After the ceremony had finished it was time for our student’s to dig in to a filling BBQ in the gardens of the Said school giving the perfect opportunity for photographs with their friends! This was followed by the chance for our students to try their hands (or feet rather!) at a traditional ceilidh with dancing and singing, rounding off the course with a joyous celebration.

The dance was held opposite the prestigious Corpus Christi College, as we hosted a great event with our student’s picking up extremely quickly the rhythmic steps and dances as instructed by the live band, an occasion that I’m sure will stay with our student’s for a long time to come!
