“I would like to say a huge thank you to all the staff; I appreciate it must be so tough teaching online and managing everything. And finally, thank you so much for the iPads!”
“We are very grateful for the iPads that have been provided by the school”
Receiving this feedback from parents after the roll-out of the Horizons iPads at Coulsdon has made the busy schedule of the past few weeks all the more worthwhile. We are delighted that 93% of our Horizons cohort now have their iPads to enhance their online learning from home. This means that over 700 of our students now have sole use of a device at home to ensure that can fully access their online lessons and minimise the disruption to their learning during this second school closure.
The academy's Christmas campaign called 1000 Miracles has been running for the last four consecutive years.
In a year like no other, where we have faced lockdown, isolation, the challenges of working and learning at home, and missed celebrations, showing those less fortunate than ourselves that someone cares and is thinking of them has never been more important. We were therefore determined to make our annual Christmas Miracles campaign happen, albeit adjusted for social distancing to ensure that everyone remained safe whilst getting into the spirit of the season of giving.
On Tuesday 8th December, three of our budding young thespians in Year 10 took part in filming for the Keep Croydon Safe campaign due to be launched prior to Christmas; an initiative we fully endorse and are honoured to have been chosen to be a part of.
Students from Oasis Academy Coulsdon took part in an interfaith debate via Zoom on Monday 16th November 2020 as part of interfaith week. The purpose of the event was to bring students from across all London boroughs to discuss what their faith means to them and how this links to contemporary issues, such as climate change, Coronavirus and more.
