Grandparent’s Day Invitation – Friday 2nd February
During Catholic Schools week this year, Grandparents’ Day is on the Wednesday, January 31st. Many schools chose this time to invite Grandparents into school to share their stories and their faith. We have chosen the Friday of that week, Friday 2nd February, to make Grandparents’ Day.
Every child in school has been given a copy of the invitation pictured above to present to a grandparent, inviting them to come in to the classroom and share their stories with the class. Every class teacher will organise something different, but we would love to hear their stories comparing life now to life when they were children. We all recognise that grandparents are very often our child’s greatest teacher and Grandparent’s Day is a time to celebrate all that we have learned from our Grandparents. There will follow light refreshments in the school hall for all our visitors.
Further copies of the invitation are available from the school office.
We really hope to welcome as many grandparents as possible on the day, so please encourage them to join us if they are able and willing. Thank you 🙂
