daventry awards 2017

The first intake of students at Northampton College’s new-look Daventry Campus have been honoured for their hard work and dedication at an awards ceremony.

More than 400 people, including students, their families and a host of VIP guests, attended the ceremony at the new multi-million pound campus in Badby Road West, Daventry On Thursday, June 22.

Best Overall Progress award went to Kurdish student Stira Haj Ibhrahim, who came to England from Syria with her husband eight years ago.

When she first came to England, Stira couldn’t speak any English and didn’t even dare to answer her front door for the first six months. Eventually she developed the courage to join the College and enrolled on a course in English for speakers of other languages. She was inspired to learn words and phrases by reading everything she could get her hands on and watching children’s TV with her young child.

Awards were handed out in categories including Best Music Video, Best Soundtrack, Best Short Film, Best Poster, Best Double Page Spread and Best TV Advert.
