Children's University

Our school partners with the University of WA in Children’s University. The program helps to inspire a passion for learning from an early age for children and celebrates this learning journey outside of the classroom.  It provides a framework to nurture aspirations, encourage children to discover new passions, visit new places, develop new skills and, above all, have fun! Children’s University embraces local learning opportunities offered by places such as public libraries, zoos, parks, museums, art galleries, theatres, sporting clubs, school clubs as well as businesses. The year culminates in a Graduation Ceremony in November at Winthrop Hall at UWA.
