Congratulations to Valsalan Nivish, Class of 2022, for receiving the Harvard Prize Book (Singapore) 2022/23 award, presented to promising students all around the world who go beyond the call of duty to show kindness and care to others. With its origins dating back to 1910, the Harvard Prize Book award recognises promising young service leaders who have inspired others to authentic and sustainable acts of kindness.

Nivish has been commended for his contributions to the college community as well as his involvement in his neighbourhood.
