Vaccination Information

Vaccination & Immunisation Talk at BAEC On Wednesday 19 June 2024 the LBB Health Protection Team came to have a talk about the importance of vaccinations and immunisation. This is very important as recently the cases of measles and whooping cough are rising throughout the London boroughs. Our ESOL students might not have the same vaccination or immunisation documents with them so it is important to get them this information. Participation from our learners was very high and we are planning more talks starting from September. A big thanks to Susanna and Berina for joining us at the Kentwood Centre to discuss vaccinations with our ESOL learners!  It was a fantastic success with 70 attendees soaking up the informative session. Vaccination & Immunisation- Further Info Please take a look at the further resources available from the Health Protection Team & the NHS below Looking after yourself and your family. Come speak to a Public health nurse to gain more information about managing your own and your family’s health, advice on vaccinations, which ones to have and when to have them. We have often found that keeping the message general about staying healthy instead of very immunisation focused, helps encourage attendance, […]

Fundraising for LLDD – Ultra Marathon

Thank you Saliha! Huge congratulations to English Tutor, Saliha Graine, for completing the ultra marathon on the 21st April 2024. Saliha ran an impressive 31 miles to raise funds totalling £1605 in support of the LLDD department and its learners at BAEC. Thank you from all the staff and learners at BAEC  ! Visit this page for more information. Abo Hi I’m Saliha. Having completed 13 full marathons, I am challenging myself to complete an ultra marathon at an event on the 21st April 2024. I’m running it as a personal challenge and shamelessly using a local good cause to incentivise me to complete it. A ‘normal’ marathon is 26 miles (42.195 km), which is 8 laps of the event I am running in. An ‘Ultra’ marathon is anything further than that. I need your help to force me to keep going for as long as possible and complete as many laps as possible within the 6 hour limit. I’m running to support the Special Educational Needs Department at Bromley Adult Education College. They need to raise money for materials and fund projects to benefit their students. By donating to them, you will put more miles in my tank! The cost of the event […]
