Involved in the Community

Community Volunteering an Oldham Park

Today students from the college volunteered in Copster Park, Tree planting, Holly planting and litter picking. Students were taught how to plant the trees and holly correctly by the Steet Scene and Park department fromt Oldham Council, who supported the students in this project - which is a part of The Oldham College, Green Week.
The Students got stuck in and had a little fun whilst planting and picking!

The Students were from a variety of courses and were able to sign up through the Student Participation Team in the Green Room. We shall be looking at taking a small group (as there are less trees) out to plant some more trees in another location before the end of March. If you can interested in getting involved in more activities like this please email or call into The Green Room and chat to the staff about the opportunities
