Upcoming Children's University Graduation
We will be holding the Children’s University Graduation Ceremony on Thursday the 30th of January between 3.30-4.30pm.
It is a brilliant way to celebrate all the extra-curricular activities your children have been taking part in. The parents and children really enjoy the ceremony!
In order for your children to be invited we need to get their passports in to see if they have clocked up enough hours…
If you would like your child to be invited to the graduation please ensure you bring your child's passports to school by Wednesday the 22nd of January (ideally with their hours counted).
PS for those who are not sure what the programme is about please see below:
At Kensington Primary School we are proud to work in partnership with the Children’s University to develop a love of learning in children. We are delighted that so many of our children have taken part in the programme and have been encouraged to participate in extra-curricular activities in and outside of school. The impact of these activities is proven to be positive which is why we’re committed to the charity’s goal of creating a level playing field of opportunity and opening up access to children of all backgrounds. Research shows that participation in extra-curricular activities can positively impact on attainment, increase a pupil’s positive identification with school, and build self-confidence and resilience. Research also shows that children that do not have access to these opportunities fall behind, lack confidence, and fail to develop career aspirations. We believe every child has the potential to benefit from our Passport to Learning scheme and I am thrilled that so many have been recognised at a recent graduation event at the school. Children who participate in Children’s University have the opportunity to learn in a rich range of contexts, experience new places and visit universities. They are also linked to activities in school and during after school clubs. This adventure introduces children to the joy of learning, brings a sense of wonder in the world around them and develops their confidence and aspirations for the brightest futures. We would like to congratulate all those children who have graduated and recognise all the hard work and dedication they have put into the programme. Thank you all and a huge well done!
