Grandparents Day 2019

Last Wednesday during Catholic Schools Week we celebrated Grandparents Day. All Gradparents were invited to visit the school and see their grandchildren in their classroom environment. Children enjoyed showing their grandparents their classroom and some of the work they had done during the year. The grandparents shared some stories about jobs they had and what school was like in their day. It was a very enjoyable morning.
