Your colum­nist is years out of date

The Oban Times - - Letters -

Sir, I read Martin Laing’s cheesed- off re­marks about early years grad­u­a­tion in his At Ran­dom col­umn ( The Oban

Times, July 13). My friend Amie is now aged 24 and I have a photo of her as a beau­ti­ful four-year- old in her grad­u­a­tion mor­tar­board. The cus­tom was new then – that’s how out- of- date he is.

It was ex­plained to me like this: many of these chil­dren will never get the chance to grad­u­ate from uni­ver­si­ties.

Now their achieve­ments will be cel­e­brated, too, and their par­ents will have pho­tos to show to friends.

The oc­ca­sion was a very happy one of love and valu­ing of each child. I was glad to be there. Lorna Cam­mock, by email.
