Grandparents' Day at Alstonville

GRANDPARENTS were welcomed to Alstonville Public School to join in a morning of festivities to celebrate Grandparents’ Day yesterday.

Lola and Kent Weekes, the proud grandparents of 11-year-old Abbie Wright, said the event was ‘lovely’.

“It’s such an enjoyable event for everyone involved,” Mrs Weekes said.

“The whole morning is packed with activities, including various performances by the children.

“We were even gifted with a fruit bowl and a flower by our grand-daughter.”

Grandparents’ Day means a whole lot to grand-daughter Abbie.

“I like nan and pop coming to school because it showed they loved me,” Abbie said.

Teacher David Wright was thrilled by the number of grandparents who turned out to the event.

“We put out about 180 chairs and it wasn’t nearly enough,” Mr Wright said.

The day was jam-packed with performances and activities to keep everyone entertained.

“The students performed dance routines, musical compositions, and we all played games such as ‘Who’s the oldest and the youngest grandparents’,” he said.

“The event was a complete success.”

Mr Wright said it was something Alstonville Public School took pride in and everyone went home happy.
