Welcome to the autumn 2019 edition of Around Ealing magazine. As is traditional with the magazine at this time of year, we look at learning.
You can view an interactive, or a PDF, version of the magazine below. The PDF version is also downloadable.
As summer gathers its belongings together and starts to think about heading indoors, and the endless school holidays spring the surprise on us of actually ending after all, it is time once again for many of us to turn our eyes to the new academic year. Pupils, teachers, parents…
Meanwhile, others will be thinking about fresh starts and career prospects – whether through apprenticeships; or support schemes to learn new skills; or through work clubs to build their CV and prospects to change job or get back into employment. We look at all of those in this edition and speak to people who have benefited from them.
There is lots more besides, though: From news of which new community projects are getting funding through Ealing Council’s Transform Your Space scheme, and who beat off strong competition to win this year’s Ealing Sports Awards; to an interview with the borough’s mayor and updates on changes to our libraries and to our children’s centres.
You may have missed the news that our borough contains London’s headteacher of the year? Well now you can find out more.
And the council has a new training partner to give you free cycling lessons, so do not miss that either.
There is also a look at September’s 80th anniversary of the start of the Second World War – and how local children were evacuated from the area in 1939 in fear of the aerial bombing threat posed by the Luftwaffe.
If that was not enough, you can also find out how to apply for places at local high schools if your child will be leaving primary school next year; learn about the mental health ‘first aiders’ at schools; and find out how local entrepreneurs and small businesses have been provided support to grow.
We will be back in late November or very early December with the winter edition of the magazine.
