High-flying students have been showered with awards from the Jack Petchey Foundation.
Youngsters studying at all five centres of City and Islington College were commended at a Jack Petchey Awards ceremony.
The awards celebrate 11 to 25-year-olds who have made a wholehearted, unselfish and dedicated contribution to their club, school or to their community.
The 19 students honoured included sixth formers Sarah Lalouche, who raised £19,000 for Palestinian charities, and Hosanna Makanda, who spoke no English when she fled the war-torn Democratic Republic of Congo in 2011, but is now applying to top universities.
Hosanna, 19, said: “I am very pleased and humbled to have received this award, and congratulate all the students who have been recognised.
