Oasis outing at Springs Arts Festival

Oasis outing at Springs Arts Festival of Cedar Court British International School, Yenagoa, Bayelsa State on 22 March, 2016

Background

Cedar Court British International School (CCBIS), Yenagoa, Bayelsa organizes a festival of arts annually in the springs term namedSprings Arts Festival. It is a one-day event – a culmination of several weeks of preparations by students and teachers. The various art works they had made are showcased on the day. Parents, guardians, friends of the school and dignitaries in the society are invited to grace the occasion. The 2016 edition was held on Tuesday, 22 March 2016.

Oasis Public Health Consulting (Oasis PHC) partnered with the school to conduct a free screening exercise for the guests. Weight and height were measured to calculate body mass index (BMI) as a way of screening for obesity (a risk factor for many noncommunicable diseases); blood pressure was measured to screen for high blood pressure (a leading cause of cardiovascular and cerebrovascular morbidity and mortality), and blood sugar was measured to detect diabetes mellitus (a disease whose prevalence is on the rise globally). Those with normal values were encouraged to stay healthy, while counselling and referral were given to those with abnormal findings. Also on display at Oasis stand were family planning commodities and other products that improve women and men’s health.
