Students from St Paul's Way Trust School were delighted to welcome HRH The Prince of Wales when he visited St Paul's Way in May. Prince Charles was visiting to open the Prince's Trust Morgan Stanley Centre which will work with young people developing both their life skills and their business skills.

Executive Headteacher Grahame Price said 'The new centre is an excellent addition to the range of opportunities available to the young people of Poplar and across the Borough'.

'The Prince's Trust has an excellent reputation for supporting young people to achieve their ambitions often working with youngsters that have struggled to find the right path as well as the next generation of entrepreneurs'.

St Paul's Way Trust School has been working with the Prince's Trust for over five years with many youngsters benefitting from their innovative 'Fairbridge' programme.

On his arrival Prince Charles shook hands and chatted with a number of Year 7 students, afterwards Raihan Ul-Karim commented 'I can't believe that I have just shaken the hand of the future King!' (Top picture).

Meeting Mohammed Abdus Samad, one of the school's Police Cadets, the Prince asked what job he would be seeking in the future 'I want to join the police force' was the confident reply (Bottom picture).
