Education, Education, Education – start ‘em young, we say.
Which is rather good news for the little ankle biters of Sunny Colch. We may have a top rate University right on our doorstep up at Wivenhoe Park, but the *ahem* cost of educating the not so little ankle biters ‘aint exactly egalitarian right now.
Hurrah! …then for the Children’s University Junior Christmas Lectures that are coming to Sunny Colch next month. No need to deny Little Johnny his new Lego truck for Christmas either – the cost of the lectures is FREE.
Yep, the morning of the 15th December up on campus will see young, active minds be become engaged with engineering, art history and art and theatre production.
Wot No Sociology?
It’s probably for the best.
The idea behind the both the Children’s University and the Christmas Lectures is twofold; there’s no harm in education for education’s sake, plus simply opening up the Ivor Crewe Lecture Hall for the young ankle biters takes away any myths about what it means to go to University.
It’s not… rocket science.
This is NOT a baby-sitting service however. The age range for the Christmas Lectures is nine to twelve. Adult supervision is required for each young Einstein. A stamping of the Children’s University passport will be put in place on the successful completion of attending the Christmas Lectures.
Now then – d’ya reckon we’d get away clean shaven, walking in on our knees and pinching the meat ‘n’ two veg down below to put in place a pre-pubescent enquiring mind and voice?
There’s no such thing as a free lunch…
