Dear Parents and Carers,

 

Admission to Reception – September 2018

 

A reminder that if you have a child due to start school in September 2018 (born between 1st September 2013 and 31st August 2014) please go online at www.blackburn.gov.uk/admissions for information about primary schools and how to apply for a place online.

 

The deadline to complete this form is today, Monday 15th January 2018! Please make sure you do this as a matter of urgency to secure a place for your child.

 

 

Relax Kids and Parents

 

A reminder that from this Thursday, 18th January for four weeks, Cathy Lang from Relax Kids will be providing after-school sessions designed for parents and children. These will start at 3.00pm and last for an hour and a quarter. Please put these in your diaries – I know your children would love to attend these sessions with you! The sessions are FREE.

 

The Mind Fit Programme

 

Mrs Motala, one of our parent governors, has handed me some information about various ‘Mind Fit’ courses (for women only) starting during January and lasting for 4 weeks.

 

The first starts this Wednesday (17th January) and is entitled ‘Why worry?’ – this will be taking place at Lancashire Women’s Centres, 25 Wellington Street, St John’s, Blackburn, starting at 10.00am and finishing at 12.00noon.

 

There is a further course entitled ‘Happiness Rocks’ which is an arts and crafts course. This will be taking place at the same venue starting at 1.00pm and finishing at 3.00pm. For further details you can visit their Facebook page or ring 01254 583032. All sessions are free.

 

The Inter Madrassah Organisation (www.inter-madrassah.org) also provide very worthwhile courses for women, including ‘Women4Women’ which aims to develop women’s health, wellbeing and positive thinking. For more details visit their website or ring 01254 503200.
