Friday 4 November
We are excited to announce that we are able to hold our Grandparents’ Day again! The last time we were able to do this was in 2019. Grandparents’ Day is a great way for Kuia, Koro, Grandmas and Grandads to come into school to have morning tea with their family, spend time in classes and browse our Book Fair. All are welcome to attend!
Grandparents’ Day is held in conjunction with our Book Fair.
Throughout Book Fair week (Thursday 3 November – Monday 7 November) students will have the opportunity to browse through a selection of items on sale – books, posters, stationery – and take part in exciting competitions and giveaways that will be held in the library at break times.
The programme for the day is as follows:
11:00am Morning tea time Grandparents are welcome to arrive at school and head straight to classes to eat morning tea with their grandchildren or take them across to the library to browse the Book Fair.
11:30am The bell will ring and students will go back to their class. Grandparents can head to the hall ready for our parade.
11:40am Parade – Students are encouraged to dress up as their favourite book character. There will be prizes for the best costumes.
Approx 12:15pm After the parade, grandparents are welcome to join us around the school until lunchtime at 1pm. Your tamariki may wish to share some work in their classroom or take you to the Book Fair in the library.
1.40pm Classes resume as normal after lunch.
