Childrens University Present National Awards to St Cleer School Pupils
St Cleer Primary School belongs to the Children’s University, a national project which recognises the achievements of young people who take part in learning activities in their free time.
Lisa Neville, Manager of Children's University in Cornwall, visited the school to present the children with Awards. She said,
I was very pleased to be invited to St Cleer Primary School to present the children with their awards. They have taken part in 65 and 100 hours of extra learning activities which shows real commitment. They told me how much they enjoy taking part in Children's University and how they enjoy using their learning passports to record all that they do. The 'graduates' dressed in the official Children's University caps and gowns to receive their certificates, adding to the sense of occasion. Their parents and family members were invited in to share the celebration during the whole school assembly.
Lisa Neville added,
By being part of Childrens University, St Cleer Primary School is demonstrating that they value all the learning that their pupils are involved in. Children's University helps to reward and recognise the extra learning they do - at school and in the community.
The scheme is open to all children aged 5-14 years through validated schools and community clubs. Children can then attend a range of activities and other approved venues such as museums, libraries and visitor attractions, to collect stamps in a Children's University 'Passport'. It is designed to encourage children to take an interest in what is on offer in their community and to seek out new opportunities to learn outside of school. The aim is to raise aspirations and strong links with the local universities opens up the possibility of one day attending university.
Catherine Stoate, Headteacher at St Cleer Primary School, spoke to the whole school during the presentation about 'aspiration' and offered encouragement to the children to work hard at school, continue to take part in other learning opportunities and eventually they could attend a real university one day. She said,
We work hard at St Cleer School to enable each and every child to realise their amazing potential. Extra-curricular activities are so important for childrens self-esteem and the development of interests and aspirations for their lives ahead. The Childrens University helps the children to see that -the world is their oyster.
The Childrens University has been a great success at St Cleer School, encouraging the children to take part in so many after school activities. It has raised the aspirations of our children; those participating in the Childrens University are all inspired to apply to grown-up universities later on in their careers.
