Hats off for youngsters!

21 June – for immediate release

It will be a very special day for local school pupils at Aston University on Wednesday, 21 June as they take their places for a special children’s graduation ceremony.

Youngsters from Aston Tower Primary School’s nursery and above will receive special 'degree certificates' wearing caps and gowns to highlight their achievements at school.

The Aston Tower School Choir will also be in attendance and will sing 'This Little Light of Mine' as their friends go up on to the stage to receive their 'degrees'.

The ceremony starts at 1.20pm and will be finished by 2.30pm. Guests of honour will be Councillor Peter Hollingsworth and plenty of proud parents!

The event is part of Aston University's widening participation scheme which aims to help extend educational opportunities to all sections of the
community and raise the aspirations of young people towards higher education.
