Three students from a school in Wembley who scaled the heights of Mount Kilimanjaro have attended a celebratory reception at the House of Lords.
Younes Berrazouane, Mohammad Mansoor, and Najeeb Jama of Copland Community School in Cecil Avenue were invited by Baroness Sharpe and the education charity Transformation Trust to mark their achievement.
The trio climbed the 20,000 feet mountain in Tanzania with the aim of “challenging and inspiring” young people after winning a competition organised by the Transformation Trust.
The climb was sponsored by computer giant Dell who awarded the school a Dell tablet for its participation in the venture.
Younes, Mohammad and Najeeb also received Dell’s latest tablet and a framed copy of an advertisement highlighting their achievement that appeared in the Financial Times.

“The chance to visit the home of British politics and be celebrated for their participation in this unique experience is truly remarkable.
