Children's University Graduation Ceremony Summer 2018
On Friday 8th June 2018, 50 students from The Coleshill School took part in the Children’s University Graduation ceremony at Birmingham University.
Parents proudly watched as their children, dressed in Red and black cap and gowns, students received awards in recognition of their dedication to extra-curricular activities. The awards were presented by Professor Carl Chin, MBE, Birmingham Community History, and Councillor Flo Nash, Mayor of Solihull. The Coleshill School had 50 Gold Award winners achieving over a 100 hours of learning activities. Three Year 8 students achieved over 750 hours.
The Children’s University Trust provides 7 to 14 year olds with exciting and innovative learning activities and experiences outside school hours. The passport to learning has been created where students collect stamps for hours of accredited learning which contribute to the award of a certificate.
Miss Blunt, Enrichment and Children's University coordinator commented “It was a fabulous event in a beautiful setting and we were all inspired by the ceremony and guest speakers, and Professor Carl Chinn. We are so proud of our students and what they have achieved. The only challenge was re-locating their caps after they were all thrown in the air in celebration on the Aston Webb steps.”
