Grandparents’ Day 2018
We had a wonderful morning in Allen N.S. celebrating Grandparents’ Day! Grandparents travelled from near and far to join us on this special day. The children prepared for the day by sharing their favourite memories of their grandparents, creating poems, singing songs, making crafts, and even carrying out interviews with grandparents.
The grandparents were welcomed to our school hall, to be entertained by our talented school choir. The choir are partaking in ‘Peace Proms’ this Sunday and so they sang a collection of the songs that they have been preparing.
After the performance, grandparents were then treated to tea and treats. We would like to thank the members of the P.T.A who helped to serve tea/coffee.
The grandparents were then given a St. Brigid’s Cross, made by 6th Class pupils, as a small token of our appreciation for their constant support and kindness. They then had an opportunity to visit their grandchildren in their classrooms.
We felt truly honoured to welcome such special people into our school today. We hope they enjoyed their morning as much as we did!
‘By our side or far apart,
Grandparents are always in our hearts!’
