MORLEY Primary School students are getting a taste of university life through ECU’s Children’s University program.

The program is designed to promote and recognise learning beyond a school day, linked to university courses.

It allows students to log their hours spent during extra-curricular activities, such as cricket club training and music lessons, in a learning passport.

Morley Primary School students Jessica Simao (11), Melody Rekhi (8) and Nathan Trinh (11).

Students who gain sufficient hours of learning will attend a graduation ceremony at the university.

Principal Nicole Kovalevs said she looked forward to watching many students graduate at the end of the year.

“Involvement in the Children’s University is completely voluntary and after our launch just weeks ago, we already have 42 per cent of eligible years 3 to 6 children registered,” she said.

“ECU has advised that Morley Primary School is the first school in the City of Bayswater to hold a passport presentation.

“Our community is excited by the opportunity Children’s University presents for our students and is looking forward to sharing their learning journey with them.”
