The Stagecoach Theatre Arts Awards and InterAct, part of the Stagecoach Charitable Trust, acknowledged and rewarded children’s achievements during 2010 at a special reception hosted by Culture Minister, Ed Vaizey MP, at the House of Commons recently.


Ethan’s well earned BRONZE Award was presented by Stephanie Manuel (who started Stagecoach) at a special reception at the Terrace Pavilion in Wesminster,

10 year old Ethan impressed the Awards selection committee with his impressive 87% mark in his first LAMDA exam, as well his great attitude, character and record of attendance at Stagecoach, which prompted an invitation to join their ‘Performance Troupe’ in June this year.


There were three categories of awards given to Stagecoach students who were nominated by their Principals. There were also four category Awards for children who don’t attend Stagecoach, including for awards for Bravery, Good Buddy & Young Citizen Awards. There was also The Stagecoach Charitable Trust's InterAct Award.
Stagecoach Co-Founder and Senior Principal Stephanie Manuel said: "During 22 years of working with young people in Stagecoach across the UK, it has become clear that they are capable of so much more. We have seen stories of heroism, leadership, caring support, commitment, friendship and downright goodness. Stagecoach has been both inspired and humbled by the achievements of these remarkable young people, which include Ethan.


Principal of Swindon’s Stagecoach, Sheryll Datta said: “I am really proud of Ethan and I hope that this award will continue to inspire him and all of my students to work hard, as with energy and enthusiasm great things can be achieved. It would also be lovely to spread the word about these awards in Swindon, so that other children in Swindon can benefit from this special day. I am happy to speak to any organisations about these awards for 2011, if they would like to contact me.”
