The N Brown Group Team Of The Week returns this week as Oldham Athletic Community Trust welcome students from Willow Park Academy to Boundary Park.
Willow Park, a proud school partner of OACT, visit Boundary Park this afternoon through their involvement with OACT’s schools programme which sees Oldham Athletic coaches deliver regular PE sessions within the school on a weekly basis. Oldham Athletic Community Trust work with a number of primary schools on a regular basis, ensuring that the football club is represented across the borough through the community work.
As a special surprise, ahead of the visit to Boundary Park, Oldham Athletic duo Robert Hunt & Chris O’Grady spent the afternoon with the school children this week. The pair took the time to visit the school to answer questions that the children had about being a professional football and to assist with their PE lessons.
Louise Hayes, Willow Park Head Of School, commented: “At Willowpark, we believe that learning should be engaging, purposeful and challenging. Through our effective and balanced curriculum, we aim to equip each child with the skills they need for lifelong learning.
"We aim to develop confident learners who are hardworking, respectful of those around them and proud of their achievements. Our curriculum is driven by the needs and interests of our pupils and school community, with sport identified as a main driver.
"Our affiliation with Oldham Athletic allows our children to continue to flourish in these key areas, developing in confidence, resilience and having access to a wide range of exciting opportunities.
"We are proud to be a school partner within the community trust.”
