The Eastlea Alumni is a dynamic body made up of former students who wish to support and mentor our current students at Eastlea Community School. It offers a wonderful opportunity to contribute in a meaningful manner to the school.
We work with a charity called Future First to help us stay in touch with former students. We would love for you to be a part of our student alumni network so that we can stay connected. Once you have signed up, we will let you know about several exciting opportunities that could benefit you and build your experience. There is however no obligation to do anything immediately after you have signed up, however, from time to time, you will receive updates.
If you have any questions please get in touch with Carlene Rowe at
If you are interested in learning more about Future First and how this will have an impact on the school, please go to YouTube and view the short animated clip that explains what Future First is all about.

We look forward to hearing from you!
