OSFC Wears it Pink for Breast Cancer

On Friday 21 October, the college supported ‘Wear it Pink Day’ to raise awareness of breast cancer. Pink Day at college is one of our biggest annual charity events and this year we have raised a fantastic £1219 for this worthwhile cause.

The Student Executive have spent weeks planning the details of this event supported by Associate Director Richard Lee. The students have surpassed themselves this year with a wide range of opportunities to donate to this brilliant charity, including a chocolate fountain, samosas, henna painting, guessing the name of the bear, pink ribbons and, of course, plenty of cakes!

Bail Rai

Award Winning Author Bali Rai visits OSFC

Dr Bali Rai, an award winning young adult author, visited Oldham Sixth Form on Wednesday 19th October to discuss his new book Game On. Bali is an admired author of teen fiction, whose books are prolifically read by GCSE students as one of their set texts. According to the author, “My aim has always been to write the sort of books me and my mates (many of whom didn’t read) would have loved at school. Reading for pleasure is a passion for me and I try to instil that in everyone I talk to.”

Chartered Institute of Insurance deliver employability workshops at OSFC

Caspar Bartington from the Chartered Institute of Insurance has been visiting Oldham Sixth Form this week to run workshops with Financial Studies and Economics students.

The students have been taking part in the workshops as part of their courses within the Business and Law department, which has given them the opportunity to understand how their classroom learning is relevant in the real world. Our students enjoyed playing the board game Discover Fortunes, which aims to help them better understand the different elements of financial planning and gets them to apply their knowledge in different financial scenarios.

Crosby Beach (14)

Drama students visit Anthony Gormley Another Place installation

A2 Drama students enjoyed a visit to Crosby Beach to see the Anthony Gormley Another Place installation. The art work is one of the stimuli for their practical exam and so a great time was had, viewing the work and soaking up the atmosphere. Much fun was had by all.
