On Saturday 15th March I joined parents and Young Leaders of Eastside and Westside at Bignold Hall for a night at the theatre. Eastside hosted the event which set the stage for the Young Leaders’ performance of ‘Heritage’, their entry in the National Theatre Connections Festival. This is an annual festival, involving over 200 young theatre companies, 5000 young people and nearly 700 performances, with the aim of inspiring teenagers to get involved in all aspects of theatre.
Saturday January 25th - two mysterious figures slipped into a side entrance at City of London School towing a large, bulging bag and a huge grin. They were greeted by Miss Anne Collard, a familiar face, who in turn pointed reverently at the bag and made a seemingly humorous comment.
This September 10 Eastside Scholars will embark upon an exciting new chapter in their lives, as they continue their education at boarding schools across the country. Over the past 6 years, 12 students have benefited from similar scholarships, however this year, 10 new students will take up bursary funded places across 6 schools.
June 2013 saw Wellington College play host to its first *PAS Summer School residential programme. Wellington, in Berkshire, located just outside of London is one of the world’s leading (boarding) schools and is increasingly solidifying its working relationship with Eastside Young Leaders’ Academy. One young leader is already a beneficiary of Wellington’s world class education, and with two scholars set to begin in September 2013, the partnership is going from strength to strength.
