Students from the Leyton Orient Trust College Study Programme were invited to The Breyer Group Stadium on Tuesday 17 September. The students watched the match against Crew Alexandra and had the opportunity to take part in pre-match and half time activities.
Selected students from the Level 1, 2 and 3 Diploma in Sport courses were invited to be flag bearers before the match, and take penalties on the pitch at half-time in front of a crowd of 4,289 fans.
Waltham Forest College Principal Dr Joy Kettyle and Deputy Principal Stella McManus joined Leyton Orient Chief Executive Neil Taylor and Head of Education Andree Selner, teachers and students for a photo on the O’s pitch.
Andree Selner, Head of Education at Leyton Orient Trust said: “Evenings like this, especially at the start of term, are a great opportunity to motivate and inspire our learners. We’re able to provide this unique experience through our close partnership with Leyton Orient Football Club. This is also a great chance for us to welcome our partners at Waltham Forest College and celebrate another successful year working together.”
