Roshni Parmar-Hill shortlisted for prestigious British Education Award10 December 2019
We are thrilled to reveal that former Greenhead College student Roshni Parmar-Hill has been shortlisted for a prestigious British Education Award in recognition of her outstanding academic and extra-curricular success in the A Level category.
This is the third year in a row that a Greenhead College student has made the shortlist for this award following Grace Goswami and Shaun Marshall who were both announced as the winners in 2018 and 2019’s ceremonies. Could this be a hat trick for Greenhead? We will soon find out as the winners will be revealed at the official awards ceremony on Thursday 30th January 2020.
Roshni was nominated for this award by Greenhead College following her outstanding A Level success of four A* grades in History, Philosophy, Religion & Ethics, English Literature and the Extended Project Qualification, plus her participation in a number of endeavours both in and outside of college.
Passionate about helping others and promoting equality, Roshni has relished every opportunity to do so.
An elected member of Youth Parliament, Roshni passionately debated for Votes at 16 in the House of Commons which she then discussed further on National Television on the BBC’s Sunday Politics.
Roshni was also the leader of the UK delegation at the IMEP in Madrid, bringing together all member states from the EU to create a model experience of the European Parliament. Part of the FEMM committee, Roshni helped produce a resolution that is now official EU documentation. In September 2019 Roshni attended the European Parliament in Brussels for an ‘aspiring young female leaders’ project.
Other notable achievements include winning the award for Best Actress in the North West for her role of Anne Frank, being an Ambassador for Hope not Hate and her continuous voluntary work at both Oxfam and at Oldham Unity, a project to help refugees and asylum seekers when they have nowhere else to turn, providing them with clothes, food and support.
Simon Lett, Principal of the College commented:
“We are all absolutely thrilled to hear that Roshni has been shortlisted for this prestigious award. She excelled academically during her time at Greenhead and threw herself into a wide range of extracurricular activities – she is fully deserving of this special recognition. This is the third year in a row that our College has been shortlisted in the A Level (zone 1) category for ‘Student of the Year’. Last year, Shaun Marshall was the deserving recipient of the award and in 2018, Grace Goswami was the winner. In 2020, we hope to score a hat trick and win this award three years in succession!”
