Southampton welcomed Abriel Schieffelers from Oasis Belgium in July. During her visit, she met with staff members, prefects and led lessons with students from across the Academies. For older students, Abriel talked about the issue of human trafficking and gave a global perspective to the students.
Principal Claire Taylor said, "It was a privilege to welcome Abriel to Oasis Academy Mayfield. Human trafficking is a significant issue in our world today and we were delighted to hear from Abriel, first-hand, the work that Oasis is doing to tackle it in Belgium and in other parts of the world".
Working with the prefects across the Academies, Abriel talked with them to see how we could strengthen the link with Oasis Belgium in the coming years.
One Oasis Academy Mayfield student, Alexa (Year 8) said, "I would like to make an assembly on human trafficking because most people didn’t know what it was. I think we need to get educated on this, as it’s something so important".
