Children’s University Awards at Tremough Campus
Earlier this week, I had the great honour of being invited to say a few words and present graduation certificates to over 70 young people at Tremough Campus who had taken part in the Children’s University programme.
The Children’s University (CU) Trust offers 7 to 14 year olds (and 5 to 6 year olds with their families) exciting and innovative learning activities and experiences outside normal school hours. The key to the programme is learning is fun, and it is not just about what you learn inside a classroom. This programme is supported by Cornwall Council.
For me it was great to see so many young people getting their certificates and the impressive range of activities they carried out as part of the programme. The awards ranged from 65 hours to a few that had amassed 600!
However, it was not just the young people who should be proud of their achievements, but also the parents, carer’s, family members and group leaders who helped the young people with the many lifts, support and time that enabled the young people take part.
Credit should also go to Lisa and her team for making this project the success it is. Finally, a big thank you should go to the campus, its staff and their Student Ambassadors who helped make this event such a success.
