On Wednesday 4th March, students from the three Oasis Southampton academies joined an event called WE Day at The SSE Arena, Wembley. With over 10,000 children in attendance it was a truly amazing experience!
WE Day is an annual series of stadium-sized youth empowerment events featuring A-list celebrities organised by the WE Charity; a Canadian charity founded by brothers Marc and Craig Kielburger. WE Day host tens of thousands of students and celebrate the impact they have made on local and global issues.
Students loved the performances by Leona Lewis and Callum Scott, and were inspired to hear from the likes of Lewis Hamilton, Idris Elba and Jamie Oliver to name just a few.
The event this year was divided into 6 missions - WE are Mindful, WE are Innovators, WE are Global, WE are One Planet, WE are Community and WE are Leaders. Each mission designed to inform and empower the full arena of young change makers.
Our students thoroughly enjoyed the inspirational day.
