OSFC Volunteers

A group of 11 OSFC students were among the volunteers who helped out at this year’s very successful Oldham half-marathon on Sunday 12 October. The students – Iqra Batool, Iram Sonya, Joshua Kershaw, Zoe James, Abigail Wild, Lauren Sheldon Mohammed Qureshi, Yi Jun Lin, Tamina Qasir, Saaba Rashid, and Hannah Smedley – all responded to a request from Steve Tyrrell, the Oldham School Games Organiser, who had been asked to find some volunteers who were willing to give up their Sunday lie-in to help out at the event.

Dance Workshop

Our Dance students had the chance to enjoy an inspirational workshop with the Rambert Dance Company on 2nd October. During the workshop, Laura Harvey taught the group repertoire from the works of ‘Rooster’ and ‘Ghost Dances’ by choreographer Christopher Bruce.



OSFC China Trip

Five of our students joined a group of young people from across the UK on a recent trip to China. The five, Alex Berkley, Ellice Wood, Ruth Foster, Sam Owen and Ciara Ward who are all studying Mandarin Chinese at the College, travelled with three year10 pupils from Saddleworth school – Milly Paton-Moore, Matilda Johns and Mia Goodyer – and their tutor Tiffany Fan.
