Children’s University Australasia provides our children with the opportunity to participate in exciting free range learning activities outside their day to day school work, whether that be before school, lunch time, after school, in the school holidays etc. The best part about Children’s University Australia is that it’s voluntary, so children get to choose what activities they would like to do, where, when and how they would like to do them. The things children learn about will always be able to be connected to something that they could study at a university, the schools for grown-ups.
Validated Children’s University Australasia Learning Destinations (the fun places you go to do cool things) all have a Children’s University Australasia Learning Destination sticker in the window. Children should go in there and participate in the activity, take their Passport to Learning with them and get a stamp for the time they spent learning. The more activities children do, the more hours and stamps they will get in their Passport to Learning, and the closer they will be to graduating.
Once children have collected enough hours they will graduate in an iconic location such as Bonython Hall at the University of Adelaide, where they will be presented with their certificate at a special ceremony, all dressed up in a cap and gown, just like the older university students.
