The last full day of the summer school was packed with celebration and reflection on the students’ time together. Parents and family joined the students in the Saïd Business School for our graduation ceremony, where certificates were awarded and everyone looked back at some of the highlights of the Academy.

Some of our students made wonderful speeches about their time with us, describing their courses and the activities which they undertook on the Challenge Day. All of our speakers were amazing, and special mention must go to our Valedictorian, Louis, for a moving and powerful speech about his time at OSA and the friendships he has made.

The ceremony was followed by a barbecue dinner, which was not spoiled by some inconvenient rain, before students relocated for a traditional ceilidh with the fantastic Swinging Molly. With spirits high, everyone returned to the accommodation and headed to bed for the last time.
