Grandparents Day at OLA

Friday 6 November OLA celebrated its very first Grandparents Day.  What a wonderful celebration this was, as so many Grandparents, those who take on the role of Grandparents and families were able to join us.  We began with a beautiful liturgy where we were able to give thanks to God for our Grandparents, those for those who are near, far away or who have already passed away.  Our Grandparents then had a tour of the classrooms.  The morning concluded with a lovely morning tea provided by our OLA families and a performance by the OLA children.  All the children sang Count on Me by Bruno Mars and the Year 1/2 children recited a beautiful poem:

Thank you for just being you

For making life more bright

More rich in love and laughter

More rich in wisdom and delight.

For everything you've shared with me

Adventures big and small

Your warmth, your stories and your smile

I'm grateful for it all.

I feel you're always there for me

And wanted just to say

You are always in my heart

Each and every day.
