Muswellbrook South Public School opens its doors for Grandparents Day

THERE were lessons for young and old at Muswellbrook South Public School on Friday, thanks to Grandparents Day.

“It’s a regular event at the school – and we’ve got more than 100 here today,” Louise Dunn said.

“They’re joining in with the physical education program and bouncing bunny activities.

“They’ll also visit the classrooms and spend an hour of learning with the children before attending an assembly.

“Afterwards, all the visitors will have morning tea.

“The day strengthens the bonds between grandparents and grandchildren – and the older residents get an opportunity to see what school entails these days.

“Everyone looks forward to the occasion.”
