Kids hang out with grand­par­ents in class

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Opinion -

STU­DENTS at St Pius X Catholic School were proud and happy to welcome their fam­i­lies into their class­rooms as part of a cel­e­bra­tion for Grand­par­ents Day.

St Pius X Catholic School Prin­ci­pal Daine Bur­nett said more than 200 peo­ple at­tended the school’s mass to share in the fes­tiv­i­ties as well as to en­joy the tasty treats pro­vided at the morn­ing tea that fol­lowed.

In fact, grand­par­ents from all over WA trav­elled to the Man­ning school to share the spe­cial day with loved ones.

“We had fam­ily mem­bers trav­el­ling from Albany, York and Bunbury, to name a few, to share the ex­pe­ri­ence with their grand­chil­dren,” Mr Bur­nett said.

“The grand­par­ents moved around the school and shared sto­ries and work with the chil­dren.”
