Harrow College Student Awards 2021

Winners of Harrow College student awards

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.Maya GhazalMaya Ghazal in her aircraft

Guest speaker for the awards night was none other than Maya Ghazal, 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. Unable to speak the language she taught herself English and overcame numerous barriers to secure a place in school to restart her interrupted studies. Through a combination of hard work and tenacity she is now is studying for a degree in Aviation Engineering and Pilot Studies at University in London. Her speech was one of hope, highlighting the importance of education and self confidence. 

The awards night was also graced by the Mayor of Harrow, Cllr Ghazanfar Ali and Mayoress, Mrs Mamona Ali. The Mayor provided atendees with some words of wisdom alongside presenting the cross college awards to a number of winners!
