PhotoHunt: Hats - Graduation



My mother Marcelle and I went to the University of New England and got Batchelor of Education degrees together. I then got a Graduate Diploma in Primary Education and she did a Graduate Diploma in Religious Education.


This is my latest entry.

Oh my goodness, I did a social science degree from there and my MBA externally. My brother and two sisters also went to the same uni. I was born in Tamworth just an hour from Armidale. Its a small world Leslie. My mum also went to teachers college there (it is now called soemthing else) and then did a degree later in life at the ANU. How wonderful graduating together. Great memory!! I really like the photo and design and the words too!

a very nice reminder of many years of sweat and burning eyebrows to earn an education degree! Very lovely interpretation!

what an amazing story! such a great tandem of fellow educators =] i'm sure those graduation caps you wore (and tossed after?) are arguably more valuable than any tiara =]

I love this contribution to this week's PhotoHunt theme! That had to be a special experience with your mother. And congratulations to her for going back to school and getting her degree. I can relate because I finally got my bachelor's degree at the age of 44 from Purdue University. Great image.

By the way, over at my blog I'm starting a new photo-meme for Sundays based on my Sunday Scenery posts. The details can be found on the Sunday Scenery Photo Meme page on my blog. I hope you'll consider joining the fun.

Hootin' Anni said...

A mortar board!!! Now THAT is hat of distinction.

I'm not a hat person, but I found 'hats' around our home that will work for the hunt. Come on over if you can. I would love to have your company.
