62 children here at Millstead School have graduated this July and we are so proud of each and everyone of you :)
This year, for the first time in our organisation’s history, the current pandemic means that our graduation ceremonies are unable to go ahead. As we are unable to celebrate the student’s success through our usual graduation ceremonies, we hope these Toolkits will go some way to make their achievement special in the current climate.
We are so disappointed that we cannot be with you to celebrate all our students fantastic learning, hobbies, interests and skills that have been gained on their Children’s University journey.
In your Toolkit that you will receive in September you will find –
• Graduates Certificates
• A Children's University water bottle and some pencils
• A link to several congratulations’ videos from local Patrons, Chancellors, Learning Destinations and supporters of Children’s University.
• Some suggested activities for you to run at home to make an occasion of the day - Making your Own Mortar Board, Making Graduation Bunting, Making a Children’s University Time Capsule, Creating a Children’s University Year Book, The Children’s University Postcard Legacy.
Please send us any pictures or videos of your celebrations so we can see what you have been up to in school! :)

Can you make your own Mortar Board?
Use the picture below to make your own very special graduation hat :)
Why is it called a mortar board?
The mortarboard borrows its name from the flat board used by bricklayers/masons to hold and lay mortar. Some people believe the reason the cap is square is because it represents the mortar board of a master workman.
What is Children's University?
Children’s University is a charity that works in partnership with schools to develop a love of learning in children. This is done by encouraging and celebrating participation in extra-curricular activities in and outside of school.
For every child that takes part in Children’s University, we want the following outcomes:
