Make Britain Better

Make Kingsbury High Best in Britain




Hello my name is Mohammed Hasan; I am 15 years of age, for my GCSE'S I am taking Triple Science, French, Geography and RS (religious studies). I like to engage in to meaningful conversations, play a range of sports, meet new people and learn new skills in order to build my character along with helping other people.  

As a labour candidate my aim is to restore the vitality and confidence in Britain's younger generation especially in Kingsbury High School (KHS). The essence of this campaign is bringing people together regardless of race, religion and background in order to make Britain a better place.


If I were to become mayor I would ensure that all your opinions and ideas are taken into consideration when putting forward new policies for the school to enforce. I would also try to raise the standard of education & social well being across school by introducing new policies to create enjoyable and innovative ways of learning as well helping people with any problems they may have whether it is at home or school e.g. bullying.

Labour victory in student election
By Jack Royston


A 15-YEAR-OLD school pupil has said he "feels great" after being elected as a student representative at his Kingsbury school.

Labour candidate Mohammed Hasan, 15, of Brampton Road, defeated four of his fellow students in Kingsbury High School's answer to the London mayoral elections.

He said: "It's a lot to take in but I'm feeling great. I'm just absorbing it and feeling happy but I'll have to work hard and devise a plan for what I want to do."

In his new role, Mohammed will be the voice of Kingsbury High's student community and he said he wants to raise the standards in a number of areas. Among his ambitions, he hopes to improve health and safety and wants cleaner toilets at the school.

He says he thinks his parents, Amira, who works for Brent PCT, and entrepreneur Al-Ghazali, will be proud when he tells them the news. He said: "It was a great experience and I have to thank the people I was competing against because I wouldn't have learned from it otherwise."

All the candidates were from year 10 and pupils from both the lower school, in Bacon Lane, and the upper school, in Princes Avenue, voted. The result was announced in both centres simultaneously at 1.45pm. The poll was arranged to coincide with today's vote for the mayor and London Assembly candidates. {Courtesy of This is London}
