Victoria's Graduation Day

Graduation at Bath Spa University.

Friday we travelled to Bath for Victoria’s Graduation this is the conclusion for her after three years full time study at Bath Spa University where she achieved a 2:1 degree. This means she now has a BA with honours for music more letters to add after her name!
Victoria has studied and loved to play music since she was about 7 years old.
Now she is home in Norfolk the real work begins finding a job and continuing to create and share her music through teaching and performance, I’m not sure if she realizes the real learning is only just beginning it will be interesting to watch and support as she continues to develop and grow, she will need to make important decisions along the way, some I am sure will be good ones, while others may well become regrets! but this is all part of the learning and growing that the University education cannot teach.
Jane and I are both extremely proud of Victoria; Jane at times during the day even had tears in her eyes as the day unfolded.
Congratulations Victoria or should I say, "Little one"
