Back-to-school day for grandparents

GRANDPARENTS will head back to the classroom at Bogangar Public School on September 18 for Grandparents' Day.

Co-ordinator for the big event Elaine Hankin said: “We had more than 200 people come along last year.

“That's not bad with a school population of 240.

“It's a special day, a good opportunity to get the extended family involved in the school and for children to share what they are doing. They learn a lot from their grandparents.”

This year's Grandparents' Day at Bogangar will feature a portrait gallery with paintings by the students of their grandparents, as well pupils' poetry readings.

There will also be plenty of games for kids and grandparents to share, including activities the grandparents enjoyed when they were kids.

Mrs Hankin said children without grandparents in the region were encouraged to bring along a family friend of appropriate age.
