Children's University

Children's University
.
Children’s University offers educational experiences for children aged between 7 and 14 years and volunteering opportunities for 15-18 year olds outside of school and recognises their achievements through the award of formal certificates and graduations. The model leverages local educational and learning activity providers (including sports clubs, museums, galleries, school clubs) and has a strong emphasis on experience as a significant learning tool, acknowledging the value of the range of different learning experiences and environments in which children engage.
Each child is issued with a Passport to Learning in which the hours of each validated activity are recorded. Once they have reached the required number of hours children will graduate from the Children’s University. Certificates are presented at graduation ceremonies held in high profile locations.

Currently, Renmark North Primary School and St Joseph’s School Renmark are participating in the program with the children who have chosen to take part being issued a Passport to Learning.
