We are holding a coffee morning and an evening meeting on Thursday 25th April 2019. Parents and governors can discuss our Eid and Ramadan arrangements.
The Ramadan Information coffee morning will start at 9:00am, and the evening meeting at 5:30pm. Both will take place at Blackburn Central High School.
Ramadan overlaps with the GCSE examination season that starts Monday 13th May 2019. Fasting will commence from 5th or 6th May, and Eid al-Fitr will take place on 5th or 6th June.
Geography and Spanish Writing GCSE exams must be administered on Wednesday 5th June, and Maths and History exams must be administered on Thursday 6th June. One of these days will coincide with the celebrations for Eid-al-Fitr.
We appreciate that 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 examinations will fail it.
Should you wish to discuss this further please do not hesitate to contact Associate Headteacher, Mrs Shanaz Hussain.
The information below aims to help you understand the health issues related to fasting, so that you are able to make more informed choices, minimise complications and maximise the benefit of your fast.
