I am pleased to confirm that we have an opportunity for pupils to attend the next Children’s University Graduation Ceremony; this is for all pupils who have achieved at least 30 hours from attending extra-curricular activities and these hours have been recorded in their passports. The graduation will take place during July; the date and venue will be confirmed at a later date.
Due to the volume of pupils that are eligible for graduation ceremonies across Southend, pupils will be able to attend graduations at the University for Bronze, Silver and Gold Award and then only the Gold at each subsequent level. Bronze and Silver for these other levels can be awarded in our school assembly.
Pupils will also only be able to attend one ceremony per academic year, so if they will achieve the next level by May it may be worth waiting for the next graduation.
If your child has achieved at least 30 hours through attending learning destinations and you would like them to attend this graduation, please could you complete the slip in the letter and return it to Miss Turner by Friday 18th May 2018 as she will need to verify their hours and give their details to the Children’s University coordinator at the Southend Campus.
