Prep School Grandparents Day

A magical morning was had by all on 1 November when over 300 grandparents and special friends spent the morning with the Prep School students. Upon arrival our visitors were escorted to Wyatt Hall where they were entertained by students singing and playing a variety of musical instruments.

Our guests enjoyed a short concert that involved performances from the Prep School choirs and students who had represented the School in the 2019 IPSHA Poetry competition. Representatives from each year level also read some very moving tributes to their grandparents or special friends. I extend my congratulations to all who read and performed.

After enjoying a morning tea in the Prep School play yard, the Grandparents visited the classrooms. This gave all students the opportunity to share with their guests the individual tributes they had written before sharing other activities they had completed in their classroom over the course of the year.

The wonderfully relaxed and happy atmosphere that prevailed throughout the morning reflected the fact that this was a particularly special event in the Prep School calendar.

On behalf of the Prep staff and students I would like to sincerely thank Mrs Lyn Heard,  Mrs Jackie Totman and all of the parent helpersfor their work in organising the beautiful morning tea.
