Five learners, who have just completed either a Level 2 or Level 3 Bricklaying qualification at the college's Rainham Campus Construction Centre, have built a dwarf brick wall at All Saints Church in Ardleigh Green Road, Hornchurch.

The project has provided a real life experience for the classmates who include: 29-year-old Dagenham resident Star Mohammad; Dominic Proctor, 19, from Upminster; Michael Coates, 19, from Rainham; David Pengelly, 20, from Harold Hill and 19-year-old Gidea Park resident Ryan Boxall, who is an apprentice with Swift Brickwork, of Chelmsford.

The college sourced 850 bricks from Belgium to match in with those of the main church building.

Star said: "This gives us an opportunity to come and see how we get on working on a real project outside the college."

Technology lecturer Demetrious Savvides said: "This has given our students the chance to showcase their brickwork skills on a real-life project which has taken three days to complete."

Vicar of All Saints Church, the Rev. Chris Wragg said: "The new wall is fantastic and we have had innumerable comments from people who are very impressed by the workmanship. It has really improved the grounds of the church and we are very grateful to the college for doing it for free."

The church project is one of several construction challenges taken on by students at Havering College of Further and Higher Education. Others include refurbishing school classrooms, the renovation of cricket club houses, designing and building animal pens for an animal sanctuary plus making new play equipment and benches for local play groups.
