On Tuesday 5th October, Harrow College celebrated the return of our Annual Student Awards Ceremony at the KP Centre in Kenton. The Student Awards are held to recognise young people and adults who have excelled in education and skills training, fought against the odds, given time as volunteers, and supported their peers in the past year.
Goodwill Ambassador for UNHCR! In 2015, Maya Ghazal fled Damascus and aged 16 started a new life in the UK under a family reunification scheme.
