Parent's Pride

It doesn't matter how old your children are, you can still revel in the pride you feel at their achievements. Today we were at the Graduation Ceremony of our daughter, Laura. Her husband, Laurence, Nina and I went to the Barbican Centre for the London Metropolitan University ceremony. Although Laura originally graduated as a teacher some years ago, she decided to add a BA(Ed) in Early Chilhood Studies to her achivements.

Apart from the presentations to the graduands, honorary doctorates of philosophy were conferred upon The Lord Mayor of London, Alderman David Brewer and Mr Mike Leigh, the film writer & director. The graduands were received by the Lord Mayor and the University President, Professor Sir Roderick Floud.
