PIP ST JOHN – SPECIALIST TEACHER IN SPEECH, LANGUAGE AND COMMUNICATION
We would like to share with everyone our good news about Pip St John, our Specialist Teacher for Speech, Language and Communication
Pip was diagnosed with Stage 3 breast cancer in February 2016. Pip underwent surgery in March 2016 which was followed by chemotherapy and radiotherapy treatment. Pip came back to work in October that year and attended a Make up Workshop at the Christie hospital in Manchester. She was then asked if she would take part in a ‘Look Good/Feel Better’ Campaign which has been publicised throughout the country.
We are so proud of you Pip and so fortunate to have you back in school with us.

We are pleased to report that Mrs Mercer and Mrs Pfeiffer spent a lovely morning at ST Thomas’ yesterday observing good practice and sharing ideas for the year 6 maths and English curriculum. They were even treated to a delicious lunch.
Dr Rehana Master
Our very own School governor; Dr Rehana Master was short listed for a Public Service Fusion award which celebrates all the wonderful voluntary work she does as well as her selfless charity work, primarily for Abu Hanifah Foundation.
She fulfils 2 key roles within the Foundation, that of Chief Welfare Officer and Head of AHF Health Services. What is more, she carries out over 400 voluntary hours a year whilst juggling a medical GP job and caring for 2 young boys and an equally busy husband.
“There are lots of worthy finalists, so it is an honour and a privilege just to be considered” Rehana remarked before the glitzy ceremony held at King George’s Hall, Blackburn on Saturday, 13th May 2017, which featured 100’s of community workers and notable organisations and personalities from all across the northwest.
She was very overwhelmed and extremely proud to be announced as the first winner f the night, describing it as ‘a very special and humbling feeling’. She thanked all the other dozens of AHF volunteers in her acceptance speech and urged everyone to give a little time to voluntary work, because together we can all achieve so much more.
