Learning assistant graduates from Open University

A Newtown Stewart learning assistant collected an Open University BA (Hons) in English Literature last weekend.

Shirley McHarg, 56, who works at the Douglas Ewart High School was one of nearly 500 students to be awarded a qualification at the Open University in Scotland’s graduation ceremony at The Usher Hall in Edinburgh.

Shirley’s 11-month olf grandson Dylan was there to cheer her on.
