Grand­par­ents Day cel­e­bra­tions

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Western Opinion -

STU­DENTS from Methodist Ladies’ Col­lege cel­e­brated Grand­par­ents Day with se­niors from Mercy Place Mont Clare last month.

The stu­dents per­formed a con­cert for the Mont Clare res­i­dents and pre­pared an af­ter­noon tea for the group to en­joy.

Mercy Health Mont Clare ser­vice man­ager Jenny Jones said it was im­por­tant for se­niors and chil­dren to spend time to­gether.

“We have be­come aware over the months that our res­i­dents and the chil­dren share many things in com­mon, not least of which is that many have ex­tended fam­ily that live in­ter­state or over­seas,” Ms Jones said.

“We’re thrilled that the school has or­gan­ised a Grand­par­ents Day to show our res­i­dents how fond they have be­come of them.”
