Age no barrier to University

Wednesday, 13 December 2017


They may still be several years away from even sitting university entrance exams, but recently a group of school students crossed the stage in full academic regalia as part of the Children’s University ECU (CU ECU) program.

Children’s University

The Children’s University Edith Cowan program, a partnership between Edith Cowan University (ECU) and Children’s University Australia (CUA), encourages children to participate in quality out-of-hours activities such as music lessons, math programs and robotics classes.

Students who completed 30 or more hours of activities received an  award at the recent graduation on Monday, 11 December.

Thirty students from Wanneroo Primary School, Joseph Banks Secondary College, and Wanneroo Secondary College received their awards from ECU’s School of Science Executive Dean Professor Andrew Woodward.

Celebrating success

Children’s University ECU academic coordinator Amanda Swift said the program aimed to enhance the academic achievement and ambition of students.

“ECU has a proud history of expanding educational opportunity so this program was a natural fit for us,” she said.

The program is funded by the Federal Government’s Higher Education Participation and Partnerships Program (HEPPP).
