Two members of the New Oasis team traveled to Virginia Beach, Virginia on April 21 to spend the afternoon at Cape Henry Collegiate School’s Dolphin Jamboree event.
New Oasis has partnered with Cape Henry Collegiate for more than three years, and was grateful for the opportunity to be able to share this event with the school.
The Dolphin Jamboree is an annual event hosted by the school to welcome new lower and middle school students to Cape Henry.
Taking place on the athletic fields of the school, the event consisted of several booths, games and food. The Cape Henry girls soccer team played a game against another school during the festivities.
Mike Atkinson, communications associate, and Issy Sun, academic associate for the Virginia Beach area, manned a booth where children played a chopsticks game, during which they had to get as many gummy bears from one cup to another as possible in 30 seconds using chopsticks.
“The game was a huge hit,” Atkinson said. “The kids were lining up and crowding around to play.”
While the children played, parents were able to glance at materials related to the Homestay 360 Program and learn more about New Oasis as a whole.
Bob, a New Oasis student at Cape Henry, is the school’s dolphin mascot, and was at the event posing for photos and playing with the children.
New Oasis strives to connect with each of its partner schools and welcomes the opportunity to attend more of its partner school events.
