Gilgai Public School welcomes grandparents for special day

Around 60 grandparents headed to Gilgai Public School last week for a special Grandparent’s Day celebration.

Kicking off with a morning tea, the school’s 57 students then combined to present a variety show with music, singing, poetry readings and dancing.

Luncheon followed with Gilgai’s P&C association hosting a free sausage sizzle made possible by a small state government grant for the event.

Those funds also went into engaging a photographer who took portraits of the children with their grandparents to keep as lasting memories of the day.

“It was a really big day,” relieving principal Lachlan Stewart said adding that some grandparents also stayed on to tour the classrooms and play with the kids.
