“Nobody can do for little children what grandparents do. Grandparents sort of sprinkle stardust over the lives of little children.” - Alex Haley

AT New Hanover Prep, the aim of celebrating Grandparents Day is to honour grandparents, to give them an opportunity to show their love for their children’s children and to help children become aware of the strength, information and guidance older people can offer.

This annual highlight in the school calendar again involved each class presenting a varied programme of poetry and song as well as personal messages. Grandparents then visited the classes, participating in a wide range of meaningful activities to bring the generations closer and celebrate the value of intergenerational relationships. They were then treated to a selection of eats with their tea.

Grandparents are precious to us as they are our continuing tie to the near-past, to the events and beliefs and experiences that so strongly affect our lives and the world around us.
