Young leaders’ award

Sixth-Formers Alex Davis and Scott Grossman have won a prestigious award recognising young leadership.

Alex and Scott secured the award from the United Jewish Israel Appeal (UJIA) for their work in leading QE’s Jewish Society.

UJIA is an organisation which works to foster stronger links between Israel and the UK and to strengthen Jewish identity. Each year it presents an award to the most inspiring person or persons delivering Jewish education in an informal setting.

“I am delighted to present Alex and Scott with the UJIA Young Leaders Award,” said Robin Moss, a UJIA Fieldworker. “They have shown outstanding leadership of the Jewish Society at QE over the last two years and are a credit to the School.”

In a letter to David Ryan, QE’s Head of Sixth Form, Mr Moss added that the society also greatly appreciates the School’s supportive attitude to the Jewish Society. “We work with the boys to provide them with speakers, food and other support, but it is only because of the positive, progressive ethos of the School towards cultural diversity that the society is as successful as it is.”

The boys received their prize at a special ceremony at the School.
