NURSERY leavers donned graduation caps and gowns in Cwmbran to mark their achievements as they progress to primary school.

The 26 four-year-olds from Henllys Village Nursery lined up to receive their scrolls from the Mayor of Torfaen, Councillor Mandy Owen.

With proud parents and grandparents watching the event, nursery manager, Emma Hardwick, said that the children were very excited during the proceeding.

In true graduation style, the children threw their caps in the air and posed for group photographs.

She said: “It was a lovely day but was also quite emotional with tears from parents, grandparents and staff.”

The graduation is an annual event for the nursery who had the specially designed caps and gowns shipped over from America.

The majority of the children will be going to Henllys Primary School at the start of the school term.

This is ridiculous, let them have their childhood before launching them into the complicated (and for many) stressful world of education! This is placing undue and irreparable damage on children who are barely old enuff to start school. Nursery schools will now put more pressure on the tiny tots to get involved long before they are able. Whats next, graduating from a baby to a toddler before some of em can even walk!
Graduation is the action of receiving or conferring an academic degree or the ceremony that is sometimes associated, where students become graduates. Before the graduation, candidates are referred to as graduands. The date of graduation is often called graduation day. The graduation itself is also called commencement, convocation or invocation, though in some cases inaccurately. When ceremonies are associated, they usually include a procession of the academic staff and candidates. At the college and university level the faculty will usually wear academic dress at the formal ceremonies, as will the trustees and degree candidates. "Graduation" at the college and university level occurs when the presiding officer confers degrees upon candidates, either individually or en masse, even if graduates physically receive their diploma later at a smaller college or departmental ceremony. After degree completion, graduates can be referred to by their graduating year.
