Honouring our grandparents this Grandparents Day

One of the most treasured events on our annual calendar is Grandparents Day. 

Not being able to invite our grandparents and special people into our school to honour them has been most disappointing. It was very important to the school community however, to ensure we continued our tradition to celebrate and give thanks for the grandparents and special people in our lives.

This year at Holy Cross, students and teachers came to school dressed as their grandparents to celebrate and honour all of them.

Grandparents are often strong witnesses to the faith and are often key in passing on the faith to their grandchildren. The relationship between a grandparent and grandchild is unique. A grandparent is always able to see past the cheeky behaviour, the tantrum or attitude to the inner beauty within. Grandchildren are always able to see the inner beauty of their grandparent and freely let them know how much they love them.

Although we were not able to celebrate in person this year, our students passionately composed letters, poems, stories and thoughts and shared these with their grandparents and special people via Seesaw. We held a special assembly and paid tribute to our grandparents.
