Stu­dent’s com­mit­ment and work com­mended

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

A MA­TURE stu­dent from Che­sham has se­cured both a de­gree and an aca­demic prize for out­stand­ing achieve­ment.

Sally Rouse, who has worked at St Mary’s PreSchool in Che­sham since 2010, is the re­cip­i­ent of an Early Years Prac­tice Foun­da­tion De­gree and an Out­stand­ing Achieve­ment Award af­ter grad­u­at­ing from Buck­ing­hamshire New Univer­sity.

Mrs Rouse said: “My time at Bucks New Univer­sity has given me greater in­ner con­fi­dence and it’s been a fan­tas­tic op­por­tu­nity.

“The breadth of in­for­ma­tion pro­vided in lec­tures and work­ing with my fel­low stu­dents has made a real dif­fer­ence to the way I ap­proach my work with pre-school chil­dren which I find im­mensely re­ward­ing. I was thrilled to be awarded an aca­demic prize.

“Ev­ery­one at St Mary’s Pre-School in Che­sham has been so sup­port­ive and en­cour­ag­ing. I have a long as­so­ci­a­tion with the set­ting and am proud to be us­ing the skills I’ve learned at Bucks New Univer­sity.

“I want to thank my hus­band, Matthew and my chil­dren, Lucy and Thomas, for their sup­port.

“Univer­sity has been a learn­ing process for us all and jug­gling my fam­ily and study­ing hasn’t al­ways been easy but I’m de­lighted to have com­pleted the course. I’m look­ing for­ward to con­tin­u­ing my stud­ies – there’s so much I still want to learn.”

Sue West, Dean of the Fac­ulty of So­ci­ety & Health at Buck­ing­hamshire New Univer­sity, said: “Con­grat­u­la­tions to Sally on her achieve­ment.

“I am de­lighted that Sally has re­ceived this award which recog­nises her hard work and com­mit­ment dur­ing her stud­ies at Bucks New Univer­sity. I wish Sally all the very best for the fu­ture.”
