YOUNGSTERS from Rathlee Nursery were all smiles as they all donned caps and gowns and received special scrolls to mark their graduation.
Mayor of St Helens Andy Bowden was on hand to perform the ceremony at the Taylor Park visitor centre.
In all, 19 youngsters from the Grosvenor Road nursery were awarded scrolls as part of the mock university ceremony which was enjoyed by all.
Pre school room leader Sharon Britch said: “It went really well and the children really enjoyed it.
“It was great to have the mayor there. The parents were happy too.”
