A Learning Destination – A Place that Inspires Learning
The Helensburgh Heroes Centre is delighted to be a learning destination for the Children’s University Scotland.
The Children’s University is a charity that provides children aged 5 to 14 with the opportunity to take part in exciting, interactive and voluntary learning activities, outside of normal school hours. Children collect credits and gain certificates while they learn. The Charity holds Children’s University graduations, at real grown-up universities, with real caps and gowns.
Taking part lets children explore different learning environments, and become independent and confident learners.The Charity’s aim is to raise aspirations, boost achievement and instil a love of learning that will stay with children throughout their lives.
As a recognised Learning Destination, the Heroes Centre offers a high-quality, fun, innovative and engaging learning experience for children. Children can enter the Centre, take part in an interactive activity and on succesful completion have their passport stamped, early them a Children’s University credit.
Children taking part at the Heroes Centre will learn about the people with connections to the town, the history of television and think about their own Heroes and role models.
