A GROUP of Morley Primary School students will have a taste of a university graduation this month after completing the Children’s University program.

The school joined Edith Cowan University’s program for the first time this year.

The program is designed to promote and recognise learning beyond a school day through extra-curricular activities.

Thirteen students logged more than 770 hours since March and will wear regalia and a hat at a ceremony at ECU Joondalup on November 13.

Principal Nicole Kovalevs said three students have achieved a silver award as they each recorded at least 65 hours of learning.

“At Morley Primary we are all learners and the Children’s University program has given our students the opportunity to participate in even more diverse learning opportunities,” she said.

“Some students have attended holidays programs at one of ECU’s campuses, others have joined in learning at local libraries and sport clubs.

“Some students have set themselves tasks and learned skills to do new things such as building a cubby or reviewing a restaurant.

“We also had a parent run a science club after school.”
