THE outstanding educational progress of 66 young people was recognised at the annual Harlow Educational Progress Awards held on Monday (4 December 2017) at the Civic Centre.
The awards, organised by Harlow Council, reward and recognise young people who have made significant progress in their education and who have made a real contribution to their schools and the community. There was also a category for Harlow College students.
The awards are now in their fourth year and this year 66 young people were nominated for the progress and contributions they have made at different learning stages, often overcoming significant challenges to do so.
In front of a packed Council Chamber, the young people collected their awards from the former Chief Executive of Harlow Council, Malcolm Morley OBE.
Councillor Sue Livings, Chair of Harlow Council, said: “It was a great honour to be at the awards and to celebrate the educational progress of 66 young people from Harlow. They can all be very proud of what they have achieved. They have done themselves, their families and schools and the town proud. The awards have shown that this group of young people, and the town, has a very positive future.”
Each young person was given a framed certificate and gift vouchers to mark their achievement. Trophies were presented to winning schools and the overall winners of each key stage category.
