Primary Grandparents Day
On Thursday 30 July primary students were treated to visits from their grandparents, parents and friends. The morning was full of stories and sharing memories and there were many comments about how learning and education has changed over the years. Some student activities included completing a ‘Personality of the Week’ about their special guest; a comparison on their grandparents educational experience and the current student activities of today; hand tracing; puzzles and other special activities.
There was a positive atmosphere throughout the morning and Mr Graeme Lawler and six Year 11 students came to work with some primary boys in small groups. It was great to hear the perspective of grandparents who are looking at education through the eyes of the younger members of their families. After the classroom activities the special guests were invited to enjoy morning tea and a chat in the boardroom.
The morning was a wonderful experience for all present.
