Below is the Blackburn Eid Jama’at timetable for any Year 11s who wish to perform their prayers outside of school during Eid.
Following consultations with staff, students, and the local community, we will be closed on Wednesday 5th June 2019 for Eid al-Fitr.
Blackburn Central High School will be open only for our Year 11 students and it is essential that they attend for their scheduled GCSE exams: Spanish in the morning and Geography in the afternoon.
We appreciate this is a very special time in the Muslim calendar, and for that reason we have made arrangements for the Eid prayers to be performed at school by a local Imam.
Following the prayers all students will be provided with a special Eid breakfast.
I must stress the importance of attending all exams, any Year 11 student not present for their examination will fail it.
Should you wish to discuss this further please do not hesitate to contact Associate Headteacher, Mrs Shanaz Hussain.
