They will conduct art classes on their premises and take them for trips into the rural areas of oldham to sketch and draw. The school teachers involved are from houghton mill school and are studying Urdu and look upon this as an opportunity to improve their spoken Urdu.

Afro caribbean are working with mather street school on a project that will look at caribbean history, music and art. This club will be held after school and will include non afro caribbean children. The aim of the project is to help all pupils identify with afro caribbean culture.
