Year 6 host special Grandparents' afternoon
As half-term grew nearer at St George's Junior School in May, the Year 6 pupils welcomed their grandparents to the school for a very special Grandparents' afternoon.
Proceedings started with a tour of the school and all the facilities, led by the pupils, who were so enthusiastic to show their grandparents around and show them where they work and play and have fun with their friends.
The children and their grandparents then headed over to the School Chapel, for an assembly which was run by the pupils. After a brief introduction from Headmaster, Antony Hudson, it was then time to hand over to the boys and girls, who wrote and shared their own prayers, performed vocal and musical pieces on the cello and piano, and a few children even performed their Catenian speeches from the competition which took place earlier this year. There was then time for one last song, performed by all of Year 6, before one of the proud grandparents stood up to say thank you for a wonderful afternoon.
There was such a lovely atmosphere throughout the afternoon, with plenty of Georgian family spirit in evidence. This is always a popular event and both children and grandparents are always so grateful for the opportunity to share an afternoon together.
