Last updated at 13:53, Thursday, 24 July 2014
MINI graduates donned caps and gowns for a celebration event to mark their time at a Barrow nursery.
Youngsters from Bram Longstaffe Nursery School, on Barrow Island, attended a graduation ceremony with their families. The four-year-olds are moving onto school in September.
The children were presented with achievement scrolls by Scott Wilson, an engineering lecturer from Furness College, watched by Barrow’s mayor, Councillor Marie Derbyshire.
Helen Smith, the chairwoman of the Friends of Bram presented the children with a teddy who was wearing a 75 years of Bram Longstaffe celebration T-shirt.
The pupils also received a CD of nursery rhymes that the children had recently been working on and recording with musician Mike Willoughby.
Headteacher Jackie Drake thanked the parents for their support and partnership and said the community could look forward to another 75 years of the outstanding service.
Bram Longstaffe Nursery School caters for children aged two to four years. Babies are also cared for year-round in the baby room.
Bram Longstaffe also has a Children’s Centre on site to support for families.
