CHILDREN in Elmswell had a taste of what it is like to graduate at a special ceremony staged by Street Farm Day Nursery.

Some 27 children heading for full time school, donned capes and mortar boards to celebrate.

They were also presented with scrolls

This was part of a fun day attended by more than 200 people at the Blackbourne Community Centre on Saturday.

Children enjoyed crafts, games and sports and were joined by Peppa Pig to take part in a sponsored toddle which raised £120 for Barnados. The day also raised money for equipment for St Monica’s School in east Africa, which is supported by Great Barton Free Church.

Clare Page, nursery manager, said: “It was a really nice way to finish off the children’s early education.”

This week, pupils at Cockfield Primary School also held their own graduation ceremony – see them in The Bigger Picture on Page 46.
