School kids from Fraserburgh are being urged to sign up for the Broch’s Children’s University which aims to build attributes prized by employers.

Pupils from Fraserburgh Academy, Lochpots, Fraserburgh North, Rosehearty, St Andrews and South Park Primary Schools are all participating in the new endeavour.

The Children’s University is supported locally by The University of Aberdeen, RGU, NESCoL and the Scottish Rural College.

Described as the University of Fun it encourages children and young people to get involved in learning experiences in and out with school through a range of activities.

Every time a child or young person takes part in a learning experience, they collect stamps in a special Passport to Learning which contribute to Children’s University credits.

When sufficient credits are logged, pupils earn awards which are handed out at a special graduation ceremony. The ceremony, which will be held in June 2015 in the Elphinstone Hall at the University of Aberdeen.

The idea follows in the footsteps of pupils from Stonehaven who were first to graduate in June 2015.

There is an information evening for parents and providers of youth organisations at Fraserburgh Academy on Wed 9th March at 6.30pm in the Academy hall.
