A COMMUNITY event will be held tomorrow to launch the Children’s University Tasmania in the Derwent Valley and Central Highlands.

The event at the Salvation Army’s local headquarters on Hamilton Rd, New Norfolk, will celebrate the local launch and provide more information about the program.

Children’s University Tasmania – which is operated by the Peter Underwood Centre at the University of Tasmania – aims to build confidence and to encourage and celebrate learning outside school hours.

Each participating child is issued with a Passport to Learning from their school, in which the hours of validated activity are recorded. Once they have reached the required number of hours, participants graduate from the Children’s University. The activities are chosen by the childrens and the emphasis is on experience as a powerful learning tool.

The achievements of graduates are celebrated each year at high profile graduation ceremonies. Children’s University Tasmania is supported by the Salvation Army’s Communities for Children program.

The local launch will be at 4pm tomorrow (Wednesday) at the Salvation Army’s Derwent Valley Corps, 79 Hamilton Rd, New Norfolk. To register for this free event, click here.
