Heard a little of how my life is planned out since then I've, been fortunate to enjoy a fulfilling career in the law and journalism in the world of sport. Working. With countless, outstanding. Colleagues and. They, have the privilege and bonus of traveling the world commentating. In football matches especially. In the days when, Scotland, qualified, for. Major tournaments. As. Dr., Halas point you know seven years since I stumbled, across the, wonderful, concept, of children's. University and, determined. To launch it in Scotland, we. Know it as Cu. The. Cu experience, provides children with limitless. Exciting. Learning, opportunities. It's. Designed, to make each child, feel valued. And imbued, with self-esteem. There. Are no exams. They. Are encouraged, to believe that learning is a lifelong activity. To. Be relished, and enjoyed. The. CU objective, is. To be available to all children. But. Especially those. Who need it most. By. The age of 18. Only. 9% of. A child's waking, life is spent in the classroom. That. Leaves 91%, of time available for additional. Learning, opportunities. It. Required only that short meeting mentioned by dr. Elizabeth for the principal to appreciate, and anticipate, see use value, to, the children, of Glasgow, his. Foresight. Was. Absolutely. Crucial. Every. Other University. In Scotland happily. There's no following, strife clades lead in becoming engaged in the project so. That children all, over Scotland know benefits, I sincerely. Hope, that many of our CU graduates, go on to share our privilege, of, enjoying a university, education. Pellegrin.
