Gowning around

Monday 13 August 2018

The first children to ‘graduate’ from the University of St Andrews’ nursery celebrated by the sea earlier this month.

Wearing miniature versions of the University’s signature red gown, the five young scholars were ‘capped’ with a giant duck and presented with scrolls bearing the University crest and a necklace made of shells from the Fife coastline.

Roseangle House Nursery at the University of St Andrews is open to children of staff and students of the University, as well as the wider local population. The Nursery, which overlooks the town’s East Sands, was opened in April 2017 by Principal Professor Sally Mapstone, who said at the time that the development was a “hugely important milestone on our journey towards becoming a more open and diverse community”.
