This year, we're celebrating 450 years of Harrow School in the UK and 10 years of Harrow International School Hong Kong.

To mark this occasion, all Harrow Schools will be participating in a special Long Ducker. 

Every year at Harrow UK, boys, teachers, Old Harrovians and parents combine to organise and undertake a charity sponsored run, the Long Ducker. Symbolically, it takes place along one of John Lyon’s roads, the Harrow Road from Marble Arch in central London to Harrow.

The Hong Kong ‘twist’ now takes place along a 15.8km route on the MacLehose trail that runs immediately behind the School campus, with alternative shorter routes that allow participation of pupils and their families from the youngest in Early Years to the oldest in Year 13, both walking and running.

The run is followed up by a huge community celebration at the School, showcasing the talents of our vibrant community. Friends of Harrow coordinates with parents to deliver an amazing range of international cuisine, setting the scene for a lively carnival atmosphere in the afternoon. The authentic food and drink, live music laid on by Harrow Hong Kong performers, and fun, games and activities all contribute to a relaxed and enjoyable day out for the entire School community.

The School aims to continue the charity tradition of Harrow School in England, and further develop our charitable support to make a difference in Hong Kong and around the world.

Our Senior School house charities for the academic year 2022/2023 – Branches of Hope, Friends of the Earth, International Animal Rescue, Ocean Recovery Alliance, Pink Alliance, Team Seas, and WWF as well as the lower school charity Food Angel and our permanent charity Crossroads are delighted that we will be supporting them.
