Graduation is a step to further study
11 JUNE 2014
Being awarded a Bachelor of Early Childhood Studies (BECS) from Charles Sturt University (CSU) in Ontario doesn't mark the end of study for Ms Moyra Hewlett, rather it's a step towards further learning. Ms Hewlett is one of more than 150 students from CSU's School of Education who will graduate in a formal ceremony in Burlington on Friday 13 June. Ms Hewlett's own experience as a single parent of twins and involvement with programs offered through the Ontario Early Years Centers inspired her to study early childhood education." Charles Sturt University offered me insight into the issues of social justice and the importance of building relationships with community and family as a means of offering quality programs for children," she said. Ms Hewlett is now planning to study a Bachelor of Primary Education Studies at CSU. "Inspired by my own children, who guide my learning each day I seek to be a teacher who, rather than making children ready for school, creates a classroom with children and for children, in response to their personal gifts and experiences," she said.
