Last week marked another milestone in Roo’s school achievements. For the third year running Roo has earned enough hours from learning destinations to graduate from the Children’s University. Three years ago marked the start of the Norfolk Children’s University with Roo’s school opting to enrol and offer the option to children and parents as to whether they wanted to partake in the scheme. Roo was the youngest graduate in that first graduation and even appeared in a county-wide magazine promoting the Children’s University. Having already graduated twice before she is being somewhat of a pro at the event but seeing her school called up first and of course being at the beginning of the alphabet Roo was of course called up first to collect her certificates from the Norfolk Children’s University Chancellor Louis de Bernieres. Last year she had managed to clock up 130 hours, however this year she managed to get up to 265 hours meaning that she collected four Children’s University certificates…
- 165 hours – Silver Children’s University Certificate
- 200 hours – Gold Children’s University Certificate
- 230 hours – Bronze Children’s University Diploma
- 265 hours – Silver Children’s University Diploma
This year has seen her collect hours for recorder/singing lessons, learning Latin, visiting local museums, attending local educational events as well as for attending her Beaver Scouts club. Her passport is already passed the 300 hours mark so we already know she’ll be back next year to graduate however it will be with a new school.
Well done Roo!
