Over 500 grandparents and grandfriends paid a visit to Christ Church on the final day of Term 3 for our annual Grandparents’ and Grandfriends’ Day.
This wonderful occasion provided an opportunity for grandparents and grandfriends of our Prep School boys to get a glimpse of what daily schooling life is like for their grandchild/grandfriend.
An assembly in the Chapel started off the morning with musical items performed by our Yahoos and Prep Rock Workshop. This followed with grandparents and grandfriends being given a tour of the Prep classrooms and an art exhibition displaying works by our Prep boys, finishing with a lovely morning tea hosted by the Parents’ Association.
Head of the Preparatory School, Richard Wright said “The opportunity to welcome grandparents and grandfriends to the School, and for them to enjoy a wonderful glimpse into the school life of their grandchild/grandfriend is incredibly significant. Watching the respect, communication and love shared by the boys and their guests on the day confirms what a special relationship this is in the lives of our boys.”
Grandparents’ and Grandfriends’ Day is one of the many attractions of the annual Week of the Arts program.
