Summer School bubbles 2018

Today is the last day of our Summer School. The primary school children set to join Blackburn Central High School this September have had an amazing time.

They have cooked, played games together, listened to stories, enjoyed sports and discovered many more fun activities.

Today the students got to create giant bubbles on the science discovery terrace. Below are some photographs of their adventures.

We hope their summer break continues to be enjoyable, and we look forward to seeing all of our students on Tuesday 4th September 2018.
