The month of Ramadan is a great opportunity to focus on bringing back a balanced and healthy lifestyle. Through fasting you learn how to manage your eating habits and improve self-discipline.
Blackburn Central High School will remain open for Eid al-Fitr this year as the religious observance falls during the national GCSE examination season.
All Year 11 students will be sitting their GCSE Physics or Combined Science exam in the morning of 15th June 2018 so must attend school as these examinations can not be rescheduled. These exams should finish by 11:00am and at that time Year 11 students will be free to leave.
We have made arrangements, with a local Imam, for students to perform their Eid prayers in school.
We will also provide a free Eid breakfast for all students, this will consist of fruit, croissants, fruit juice, and traditional dishes such as parathas, rasmalai, kheer, zarda and vermicelli.
