The relationship between family, community and school is extraordinary, and we place strong importance on celebrating family and creating opportunities for mums, dads, grandparents and carers to share in the life of the school. Over the past few weeks, we’ve put out the welcome mat and had a fantastic time with grandparents and also enjoyed a delicious breakfast to celebrate our dads.
Father’s Day Breakfast
Over 340 dads and their kids came along to our annual Father’s Day Breakfast this morning. It’s a special event where students celebrate the special bond they share with the important men in their life.
It’s heart-warming to see how excited the children are to share breakfast together, to show off their work in the classroom and spend some quality time in the school environment.
Grandparents Day is a celebration of the whole family and a way to connect generations. We love to invite grandparents to the school to acknowledge the valuable role they play in contemporary families.
The relationship between grandparents and grandchildren is very special. As well as being the ‘chief giver-of treats’ grandparents offer children unique companionship. They add a fundamental link in helping children to understand their values, who they are and where they come from.
CCGS grandparent Brian Mann, feels that grandparents are fundamental in children's lives.
"Grandparents provide a reflection of the previous generation and they give children a different dimension to their own parents. Grandparents often reinforce the values that parents are trying to promote in their children."
"Grandparents are important members of the family," said Brian. "They are there to love children and quite often they're another person to play with and talk to."
