BACK TO SCHOOL FOR GRAND­PAR­ENTS

South Burnett Times - - SOUTH BURNETT SCHOOL NEWS -

ON NOVEM­BER 2, Cloyna State School cel­e­brated Grand­par­ents’ Day.

It was a spe­cial day for all those who at­tended the pro­gram and for us, as it gave us a chance to in­ter­act with an age group that is most of­ten over­looked.

Bella, Zac and Kye Borninkhof cel­e­brated the day with both set of grand­par­ents.

Grand­par­ents play an im­per­a­tive role in the life of ev­ery child.

They are the child’s sup­port and their best friend.

Grand­par­ents pam­per the kids more than the par­ents them­selves and leave a last­ing im­pres­sion in the child’s life. So it’s time to fa­cil­i­tate and hon­our the grand­par­ents.

The event started with in­ter­views by the chil­dren, fol­lowed by a quiz Are You Smarter than Your Grand­child? be­tween the grand­par­ents and stu­dents.

The younger stu­dents shared a story with their grand­par­ents and then did some draw­ings for them.

“It was an ex­cel­lent morn­ing with my grand­son and my son’s best mate. I hope it is an event ev­ery year. I can’t wait to go next year,” grand­par­ent Wil­liam said.

Grand­par­ents joined the chil­dren and staff for a lovely morn­ing tea to­gether to fin­ish the day. Ev­ery­one was truly happy. It was a very suc­cess­ful event in­deed, and we look for­ward to many more.
