What a wonderful Monday morning the Year 1’s had treating their grandparents! We were very lucky to have grandparents travel from all over Melbourne, interstate and even internationally to visit us at school to share in our special Grandparents’ Day. We had over 180 grandparents attend!!

To begin the celebrations, our grandparents engaged in many fun activities in our classrooms. Interactive Bingo, making bookmarks, drawing family portraits and playing card games were just a few of the fun activities that were on offer. After having loads of fun in the classrooms, our grandparents were treated to a singing performance in the hall. We sang Do-Re-Mi, It’s a Beautiful Day, Oh Grandma Grandpa and L.O.V.E. Tears of joy, laughter and applause were heard as the Year 1’s sung and danced so wonderfully. The rest of the school will get to see some of our songs performed at assembly next week. Our grandparents then enjoyed a delicious spread of sandwiches, cakes and yummy party food.

Thank you to Marsh Sensei for helping us learn our different songs and the OSPS Parent Group for setting up and preparing the food. Thank you to our Year 1 teachers for all of their organising and last but not least, a ginormous THANK YOU to our grandparents for making our day so memorable and special.
