This week we have been celebrating the wonderful contribution that Grandparents make to the lives of the children in our school. This year, Pope Francis instituted a World Day for Grandparents and the Elderly, which was celebrated on 25th July 2021 and the National Grandparent’s day falls this Sunday. Pope Francis said, “The whole Church is close to you – to us – and cares about you, loves you and does not want to leave you alone!” We want to say a big thank you to all our wonderful Grandparents who joined us during this week. Your grandchildren spoke so proudly and excitedly about your visits, and I know the other children in the classrooms enjoyed the stories and conversations as well.
