“Grandparents are like stars. You don’t always see them, but you know they’re there.” — Unknown


Dear Parents,
There’s no doubt that grandparents are awesome. When we were children, they were most likely the people we went to for an endless amount of love, and to be totally spoiled.

They are the ones who let us get away with so much more than our parents would. They are also the wise ones we go to for advice, since they’ve seen so much more of the world than us.

Our first Grandparents Day at the centre was awesome it was the perfect time to tell them how much we love them.
We started with the photo booth and slideshow, the testimonials by the guest of honour and other grandparents.

This was the beginning of a great morning, the songs, the quick snack, the games and free dance all added to the festive mood of the day. Finally the Art and craft related to the unit that the children were learning about all added to make up for a memorable celebration.


For those whose Grandparents were unable to make it, yes we missed you but the present grandparents had enough love to share around and were more than happy to be substitutes for the day.


This week, Wow Wednesday, ‘Shape Day’
– was an amazing day with each teacher representing a different shape, school was a fun filled place with each one discussing the shape they all came dressed as. The representation and song by the teachers was a learning for the children, they were exposed to the different shapes and their properties through musical by the teachers.


Hope to see you tomorrow –
