Leeds East Academy


2019 Rotary Award Winner

We are pleased to announce that a student from Leeds East Academy has been awarded the prestigious Leeds Rotary Young Citizenship Award.

Nathanial was nominated for this award because he is an extremely helpful young man. He consistently upholds and demonstrates the Academy values, especially respect and confidence. 

Ms Blezard, Teacher who nominated Nathanial, said, “He is a polite and well-mannered young man and is an exemplary role model to individuals inside and outside the Academy.” 

Nathanial was unable to attend the ceremony held in the Banqueting Suite of Leeds Civic Hall, therefore Mr Whitaker, Executive Principal, presented his award. 

Mr Whitaker commented, “The Trust are immensely proud of Nathanial for receiving this award, he is a wonderful role model. We wish him every success in his upcoming GCSE exams.” 

The annual Young Citizen Award Ceremony is organised by the Rotary Club of Leeds. More details about Rotary International can be found at their website http://www.rotary-ribi.org.
