Teaching Stars

3rd June 2016    News

Oxford City Stars are proud to welcome Class Act to the club as a sponsorship partner.

Class Act Teaching Services are the leading supply teaching agency in the city and across Oxfordshire, providing primary schools with qualified supply teaching staff for the past fifteen years. It is therefore highly likely that many parents and young people from the area will already have heard the name Class Act Teaching Services through local primary schools.

Class Act Teaching Services is a family run business and Director Mark Oliver is a former Ice Hockey player here at Oxford.  Having more recently followed the game in Canada, where Mark spent a large amount of time over the last 10 years, he is now more UK based and is passionate about helping and developing the game here.

Class Act’s Director Mark Oliver said “ I hope that the sponsorship offered by Class Act Teaching Services will help the adult players in the Oxford City Stars to build on last year’s excellent results and achieve great things again in the new season ahead”

In a unique twist, Oxford City Stars have offered to share the support financially with the Oxford Junior Stars for youth development programs.  Both Class Act Teaching Services and the Stars aim to jointly offer more support and opportunities for children in the Oxfordshire community in the future. This sponsorship builds on the services that Class Act Teaching Services already provide for schools and through their established contacts will also allow Oxford Junior Stars and the game of Ice Hockey to have increased exposure to more young people throughout the county.

Stars Director Russell Shrives  said  “I would like to welcome as partners, Class Act Teaching Services, who have joined us a sponsor for not just for the Oxford City Stars, but also for Oxford Junior Stars. Hopefully this exposure will encourage children to participate or follow Ice Hockey as a spectator sport.”
