Grandparents help lift average age
THE average age inside St Joseph’s Primary School skyrocketed last month for the annual Grandparents Day.
About 150 grandparents were welcomed into the school as part of a day aimed at acknowledging their importance within the school community.
The day began with a whole school mass and was followed by a morning tea, before the grandparents spent time with students in the classroom and in the yard.
‘‘The grandparents had a very enjoyable day and students were appreciative of everything their grandparents do for them,’’ deputy principal Matt Knight said. Tara Atley and her grandparents.
