Day is fun for young and old

Seymour Telegraph - - NEWS -

While lots of grand­par­ents get to take care of their grand­chil­dren, which is a great help to the chil­dren’s par­ents, many army chil­dren do not of­ten get to meet up with their grand­par­ents or ex­tended fam­i­lies.

So the lo­cal Anglican Moth­ers Union group be­gan an Adopt a Granny Day pro­gram at Puck­a­pun­yal Pri­mary School 12 years ago.

Mem­bers have vis­ited the school for the past 12 years, with this year’s Adopt a Granny Day on Fri­day mark­ing the event’s 13th year.

The adop­tive grans have a fab­u­lous morn­ing with the school chil­dren and their teach­ers, while some real grans of the chil­dren have joined in the fun also.

The chil­dren join in songs that the grans teach them, and sing a spe­cial song for the gran­nies also.

They en­joy show-and-tell time, para­chute games in the school yard, mu­si­cal dress-ups with colour­ful hats, wigs, cos­tumes and jew­ellery, and this year there will also be some craft work hap­pen­ing.

Hav­ing fun: The para­chute game at Puck­a­pun­yal Pri­mary School’s Adopt a Granny Day is al­ways pop­u­lar.
