Australian granny, 94, becomes world's oldest master
Ninty four-year-old Phyllis Turner (C) poses with her supervisors, Professor Colin Groves (L) and Professor Maciej Henneberg after she received her Masters degree in Medical Science from at the University of Adelaide in this handout
CANBERRA (Reuters) - A 94-year-old Australian great-great-grandmother who quit school at 12 is said to have become the world's oldest person to earn a university masters degree.
Medical Science Masters Degree graduate Phyllis Turner, from Australia's Adelaide University, began studying for her postgraduate degree at age 90 and received her award this week.
"I feel very very happy after five years of study, but sorry that I am just a little bit immobilized," Mrs Turner, who uses a walking stick, told Australian papers.
Degree supervisor Professor Maciej Henneberg said he had been amazed by Turner's energy and dedication to study.
"Mentally she was like any other student. You couldn't tell her thinking, her enthusiasm and her interests apart from somebody who was 25. She has a lively mind," he told Reuters.
"She used to wake up at 5am in the morning and think about something, and then ring to say she wanted to check on it."
Turner left primary school at 12 to help her mother look after her siblings after her father left the family.
She returned to study almost 60 years later, enrolling at the prestigious Adelaide University to study anthropology at age 70, winning honors in 2002 before moving on to her masters.
Henneberg said Turner completed a research based paper into the anthropological history of Australia prior to European settlement and international investigations showed she was the oldest postgraduate degree recipient in the world.
"We will be trying to enter her into the Guinness book of world records, he said.

قريت عن هالخبر في عمود من اعمدة الجريدة قبل فترة
و لكن اول مرة اجوف صورتها و ادري انها من استراليا
حبيت في الموضوع اصرارها على الحصول على الماجستير في تخصص صعب
من جذي فهي تعتبر مثال رائع خصوصا للناس اللي تشعر بأن اي عمل في الدنيا مستحيل او ان الدنيا ما عندها هدف تعيش علشانه
شكرا يا سما عمان على البوست :)
هذا هو طلب العلم من المهد إلى اللحد ..يا ريتنا نصها!!ـ
اعتقد ان عندها عزيمه واصرار من حديد
اتمني لو التقي فيها
هاذي لو عندنا بالكويت
اتقدم على الديوان
وتطلعلها وظيفة محترمة بعد إنتظار
3 سنوات ربما تطول وربما تقصر
بس صراحة يعجبني إصرارها
وايد نجد ناس في حياتنا اليومية
يقولون لك مافي وقت
أو ماباقي بالعمر باقي
لكن هالإنسانة دليل إن هالمقولة غلط والمفروض لا تقال أساساً
I find it hard to believe, sorry
Well maybe there's hope for me after all!
She'd better be careful she doesn't get zapped in the heart by a stingray. That's usually how these things end in Australia, I think...
والله نفس الشيء قريت الخبر بالجريدة...ورحت أدور عنها...أبهرتني بتصميمها الكبير.
وجعلتني أفكر و أفكر أن لا حدود للعلم و المعرفة و لا حتى عمر.
لا يمكن شيء أن يوقف الانسان عن المثابرة و المحاولة و السعي ما دام يملك الارادة القوية للمضي قدماً مهما كانت الصعوبات.
ولم لا؟؟؟ لماذا لا تكون ملهمة و محفزة للغير.
فعلاً...هذا ما رأيته فيها.
القوة و الارادة و الحب والشغف...حبها و شغفها للعلم هو ما حفزها لتكون بنشاط الشباب.
للاسف فيه شباب و يأسين من العلم و المعرفة و العمل
لهذا جميل ان يروا مثال يشجعهم و يدفعهم للامام
أراها نموذج للكل و انا أمامهم
وبالفعل أثرت بي....وبايجابية شديدة
لدرجة ان صورتها الان بموبايلي
Jeff: Yeah...I think there is a chance for all of us to think again about Education and that can motivate many people to rethink about joining school and complete their education and learn more.
For Heaven's Sake... a poor lady...she can't move on the solid ground...what she will do in the sea with a stingray????
she isn't The Crocodile Hunter???
she is sweet determined granny.
I'm proud of her...Wish to see people like her here.
Now you see what you’re grandmother have got, little children. GO STUDY! lol
