Children who have been taking part in a charity scheme that encourages a love of learning through extra-curricular activities have graduated at a special ceremony in Scarning.

The 43 children who are members of the Children's University Norfolk charity graduated this week during a special ceremony held at Scarning VC Primary School.

To earn hourly credits in their Children's University passports the children had to attend out of school learning activities carried out at school clubs and venues throughout Norfolk and other counties.

The head teacher at the school, Nick King, said: 'The children's university continues to be a key part of Scarning School life. The families seem to get so much from the project and the number of ways that children earn their hours is so rich and varied. The graduation days themselves are a real highlight in our school calendar.'

The charity works with more than 1,000 schools and over 100,000 children aged five and above.
