Young Philanthropist Scheme

Young Philanthropist Scheme

Following Joan Deslandes’ inspirational address at Speech Day, ten of our Lower Sixth Form pupils spent a week working at Kingsford Community School in Beckton, where Ms Deslandes is headmistress.  This is an annual programme which involves our pupils fulfilling a wide range of activities including assisting with academic lessons, drama and educational visits.  To quote one of our participating students:

“I found the experience incredibly rewarding, such as when we met up with some students who were unsure about what they could do in the future, and then explaining all the different paths that they could take and giving them some suggestions on what they could do in their future years. Meeting up with these pupils was also incredibly interesting because you were able to understand the passion and drive from these students to do well in their future life, even the ones from the most difficult backgrounds.”
