Grandparents’ Day 2017

We had 31 children’s grandparents visit on Friday 29th September for our annual Grandparents’ Day event.

Grandparents were invited back to school to observe and participate in a variety of lessons with their grandchildren and their teachers. We had a very busy morning throughout school. By 11.00am, grandparents had a well deserved break from working hard and could enjoy cake and coffee as part of the Macmillan Coffee Morning, organised by Gilly.

Parents, Stay and Players, pupils and our grandparents all gave so generously to the cause and raised a whopping £447.11 for Macmillan Cancer Research! Thank you all so much for your donations.

To finish the morning, we held an assembly where Mr Martin thanked grandparents before performances from several children including our recorder group and Bea in Form 6.
