PARENTS and carers in Redditch who require a helping hand with the online school admissions application form are being invited to a free help session.

Organised by Worcestershire County Council's Library and Learning Service Comput@bus, the session is at Woodrow First School this Friday, January 10, between 9am and 1pm where a qualified teacher will be on hand to lead through the admissions process and to assist anyone who isn't able to get online at home.

The Comput@bus has eight desktop computers, is equipped with heating and air-conditioning and also has disabled access via a lift.

Anybody who is unable to attend this session can access a computer for free at their local library.
