Yesterday we celebrated Grandparents’ Day. It is one of my favourite days in the school year. The look of love and pride in the eyes of our visitors speaks volumes for the unique bond that exists between grandparents and their grandchildren.
For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. Matthew 6:21
Grandparents are a family’s greatest treasure, The founders of a loving legacy, the greatest storytellers, The keepers of traditions that linger on in cherished memory.
Grandparents are the family’s strong foundation. Their very special love sets them apart. Through happiness and sorrow, through their special love and caring, Grandparents keep a family close at heart. (Author unknown)
Highlights of the day included tours of the garden, the Book Fair and the classrooms. Mrs Enter commented, that the garden did a ‘roaring trade’ with the jams and beautiful fresh produce sold out in no time! A very special thank you to Mr & Mrs Enter for all they do for our Gardening Program. Many books were purchased in the library – thank you to Mrs Gardiner and her team of helpers. Morning tea was delicious – thank you to parents who sent in a plate and to the staff who served. To culminate the morning our school choir performed to a packed hall – thank you Miss Bechley.
This week we also celebrated Book Week 2018 and what a wonderful day it too was for all. It truly is a day that has a very important place in school’s calendar of highlight events. The theme for Book Week, Find Your Treasure provided the inspiration for yesterday’s Grandparents’ Day mass. On Tuesday, to celebrate Book Week the children enjoyed the annual events of the Book Week Musical followed by the Book Week Dress Up Parade. In the afternoon, the children were involved in activities based on the award winning Literature and incorporating Art for all students
