LIVERPOOL'S newest theatre group have started rehearsal of their first production which promises a lorra, lorra laughs.  The Magic 7 Theatre Group was formed earlier this year at the Lancaster Centre, an adult learning centre in Walton which is used by people of all ages with learning disabilities.

The play "Lost for Words" has been specially written and is being directed by Byron Alcock director of the A La Mode Theatre Company.  It is a based on 2 characters, David and Lisa ,who meet on Blind Date and the first act is based on Cilla Black's TV show

The play is a comedy but behind the laughs lies a serious message about Person Centred Planning which is a way of ensuring individuals get the correct support and what this means to an individual. It also looks at what can happen if you make assumptions about people and their behaviour and how sometimes people's opinions are overlooked because they are not always able to express themselves in the way most people are used to.

Cllr Flo Clucas, Executive Member for Social Care, said;- "It is very encouraging that this group has been formed. The themed year for 2006 is Liverpool Performs and this play will show how every section of the community is taking that on board and being creative. I am sure the play will be a great success, provide a lot of fun but still get a serious message across."

Lost for Words will be performed on January 18 and 19 at Community Learning Centre St John Bosco School, Croxteth.

A tree-mendous norse-ry school!

A LIVERPOOL nursery school has scored the highest possible marks in a government inspection.  East Prescot Road Nursery School has been described as "outstanding" by OFSTED, who have concluded that it is a "very special school with special staff".  Among its pioneering work is a project to develop links with schools in Denmark and Sweden, and devise a more adventurous and environmentally focused education.

And to celebrate the tree-mendous achievement, oak, birch and ash trees are to be planted by pupils and visiting staff from the Scandinavian schools this coming Thursday, 24 November.

Headteacher Louise Boyd, said:- "We are absolutely delighted with this OFSTED report.  It is testimony to hard-working and enthusiastic children, dedicated and talented teachers, supportive and informed parents and committed governors."

The school, which has 60 youngsters aged 3 to 4, is described as giving children "a wonderful start to their education with outstanding Foundation Stage provision".

Children "make very rapid progress and achieve exceptional standards", and their behaviour is also praised in the report.

Councillor Paul Clein, executive member for children's services, said:- "This is a fantastic tribute to the excellent start to their educational journey that staff at East Prescot Road nursery school are giving pupils."
