Prize Giving 2021

Harrow had much to celebrate at the annual Prize Giving 2021 thanks to our students and their extraordinary talents – be they academic, sporting, dramatic, musical or other. This traditional event included the awarding of prizes, many outstanding musical performances, the Annual Bill, speeches and saying good bye to our Upper Sixth leavers. It is a time to recognise the remarkable achievements and progress made over the course of the year within our vibrant school community. 

The Best of Harrow Music

The Best of Harrow Reflections

One of the songs to be performed by our Prep School Choir is entitled Sisi Ni Moja. This translates from Swahili as ‘We Are One’. The content of the lyrics reminds us that whatever our culture, creed, background or race – ultimately as humans on this planet together we all belong to one family and must take care of one another. Ultimately, like any school, Harrow Shanghai is all about people, the rest is simply inanimate bricks and mortar. The highlights of this year have centred upon successes brought about despite adversity and challenge – whether that be within public examinations, university places gained, enjoying the beauty of creative and performing arts delivered together shoulder to shoulder once again, in addition to coming together as one to celebrate our commonality during events such as International Day, the Chinese New Year Celebrations and more recently the inaugural Harrow Ball.

The Best of Good Byes

We remain true to our mission and to creating proud and successful Harrovians. True Harrovians the world over are easily discernible thanks to their obvious characteristics: they are confident, but not arrogant, interesting and interested, determined and persistent, and compassionate when it comes to recognising the plights of others less fortunate than them. These genetics play a central role not just in shaping the people they become, but in sharpening the saw when it comes to performing when it matters most within any arena. 

Finally, to the Upper Sixth leavers who are no longer Harrovians but International Old Harrovians, let the Harrow Core Values of Courage, Honour, Humility and Fellowship guide you in all you do, and stride forward confidently ready to shape the new communities you now become a part of. In so doing, know this: you remain forever a part of our Harrow Shanghai community – sisi ni moja.
