Graduation Time...but not as we know it!

 

I am sure there is no need to remind you of this "unprecedented year" and the corresponding changes to all our lives.  Covid restrictions has of course changed Westminster Children's University graduations.

 

But, that does not stop us from celebrating the amazing resilience, creativity and skills of our students and

despite lockdowns, home schooling, social distancing..etc more than 1081 CU students will graduate.  Our students have not only participated in a whole range of activities but they have adapted to online activities totalling 111,000 hours.  This is a massive 30,000 extra hours on previous years.

 

Graduations are taking place now all over the borough and the team have organised a range of school assemblies and fun days instead of Kensington Hall.  Along with receiving certificates students can enjoy ball ponds, circus sills, and other fun activities.

 

We have everything waiting, certificates, gowns etc

 

Is your graduation ceremony already booked, if not please get in touch with us soon.  Take pictures and send them to us so we can publicise WCU graduations 2021!

 

 

 

 

 

 

How does it feel to be back at school?

 

March 8th all school children back at school!  Hurrah!

This is a great thing as all children should be allowed to be free to play, meet their friends and have fun!  That is a child’s right.  But at the same time some children may feel nervous or anxious after being stuck at home for so long without the normal routine.

Luckily children at Queens Park at other WCU schools are able to speak to their teachers and well-being staff about how they are feeling and these people can listen and help pupils get back to school.  If any parents or pupils feel nervous they should speak to a teacher or find out who the well-being officer is – we are always here to help

 

 

In the news

 

Meghan Markle is of mixed race heritage.  Her mother is an African American and her father is white.  Today many children in Britain have parents that come from different countries and cultures.  What do you think about this?  Is it good for the world to have people with a mixed background?  Why?

 

 

Eulina joined WCU a year ago in 2020.  Eulina had previously worked with older children so it was a bit of a shock to work with Primary school children, but she has simply loved the energy, creativity and enthusiasm of primary school children. 

 

Eulina works closely with Stella Wilson to create and organise social, cultural, sporting and educational activities for the young people who belong to the university.  Eulina believes that given the opportunity a child can do anything! She says, when she was young she had lots of teachers who told her she can do anything.  They said she can travel the world and go to amazing places like India and Australia.  They told her she would meet interesting people who had different life to her own, such as a Sherpa in Nepal or a monk in Vietnam.  Eulina took their advice, she did well at school and was able to do all these things and meet fantastic people. 

 

So, along with the rest of the WCU team Eulina wants to encourage young people, through WCU activities, to learn, question, explore have fun and to boldly go and do things they thought they could not do or go!
