KELVINSIDE Academy, a leading Scottish independent school situated in the West End of Glasgow, will host its first Business Breakfast featuring a presentation from Donald Stewart, managing director of The Forrest Group, which has interests in advertising media and property across the UK.
Taking place in the Miller Drummond suite of the school’s Balgray Campus from 7.30am – 9am on Friday 26th October, attendees at the Business Breakfast will include parents and former pupils who have gone on to establish their own business enterprises.
Kelvinside Academy rector, Robert Karling, said: “In addition to providing networking and professional development opportunities for business people, our business breakfasts will in due course directly benefit those pupils participating in the enterprise strand of our curriculum.
“We also aim to encourage members from the local professional and business communities to engage more directly with the school through a range of initiatives, such as inviting them to put some of our pupils through mock interviews, or give them some work experience that will help prepare them for their future careers.”
Kelvinside plans to develop an ongoing programme that will see Business Breakfasts held twice each academic year.

Notes to Editors
· Kelvinside Academy was opened in 1878 by the Kelvinside Academy Company. After the First World War, as a memorial to former pupils who had been killed in action, The Kelvinside Academy War Memorial Trust was formed and the assets of the company were acquired by the Trust. Having formerly been grant-aided, the school became fully independent in 1985 and co-educational in 1998.
