GRANNIES, GRAMPAS AND ‘GRANDFRIENDS’ HONOURED WITH PICNICS AND PERFORMANCES
By Roxanne Litherland and Beth Cooper Howell
St Francis College knows how to spoil the VIP members of its family – and they did not disappoint this year when the school celebrated Grandparents and Grandfriends Day.
These much-loved special guests were treated to hugs, songs and delicious eats; an annual reminder of the treasured role they play in these children’s lives.
After a karaoke of many songs sung both by the school’s guests and Grade 00 – Grade 2 pupils, everybody gathered around on the grass outside for some bonding time and picnics. Many proud children took their guests on a tour of the school and their classrooms.
After much laughter, giggles and tons of fun, everyone agreed that this day was a highlight on the college calendar.
