THIRTY-two children at St Osmunds Pre-School in Salisbury celebrated moving on to the next stage of their schooling with a ‘graduation’ ceremony.

the four year olds dressed in gowns and mortarboards and received a scroll for their pre-school diploma.

As part of the ceremony the children sang, acted and told nursery rhymes.

Pre-School manager Trudy Surman said: “We held our first graduation ceremony last year and it was so popular, we decided to hold it again.

“It’s a real family affair and helps give the children confidence to go on into primary school.”

The pre-school is run as a not-for-profit charity and feeds into seven primary schools in the area.
