It is with great pleasure that we can announce our virtual Children’s University Graduation Ceremony to celebrate the achievement of the graduates of 2021. The ceremony will take place via Zoom on Thursday 24th June at 9.30am.
When you sign into the meeting, we need you to set your Zoom account name to that of your child to ensure that we can identify you for admittance. Please be aware that there is a maximum of 2 devices per graduate allowed to log on to the ceremony. You will be required to have your settings on mute throughout the ceremony.
If you haven't received an email with Zoom details but you feel your child should be graduating, please contact the office as soon as possible.
What is Sefton Children's University?
Sefton Children's University recognises and rewards children's voluntary participation in learning activities and experiences outside the normal school curriculum.
How does it work?
Here at Holy Family we are delighted that so many of our staff give up their time to run clubs and we are proud to offer a variety of activities for different year groups.
Children attending activities within school will gain credits which they can bank in order to graduate.
1 credit is awarded for each hour of attendance. Children can gain a maximum of 10 credits per term on each activity.
Children will be issued with a Children's University passport to collect credits outside school at other learning destinations.
Children who gain sufficient credits by the end of a Key Stage (end of Year 6 or Year 2) will be invited to graduate from Sefton Children's University at a special ceremony held at a local university.
Attendance at Sefton Children's University activities is voluntary and as such children must commit to attend regularly in order to gain credits. Credits are awarded for attendance, not for achievement or performance.
