What a privilege it was to attend the Children’s University Graduation at Lancaster University this morning. We had 39 pupils from Year 5 and 6 receive their certificate, wearing their caps and gowns. Their engagement with learning outside the classroom – be it in sporting, musical, art or other school clubs or visiting many of the learning destinations in the North West- rewards children with credits to stamp in the Children’s University passports. Tineka and Thomas spoke about their engagement in the scheme and Amy, Andi and Carina showed an imovie they had made.

Have a look at the short video below which shows the children being photographed and doing a very traditional degree trick!
