Grandparents Day

posted Jun 5, 2018, 8:14 PM by Reception @TMCS

We are looking forward to this wonderful day when we will especially celebrate our Grandparents!

If your child does not have a Grandparent available, they are welcome to invite a neighbour, aunt, uncle or an adult friend to come and share the celebration.  If these options are not available to you, staff will be happy to team your child up with a surrogate grandparent.

A general guideline of our day is as follows:

9:30am: A welcome to Grandparents and visitors will be held in the Tamahere Community Centre.  


9:45am:   Special Assembly

10:30am: Morning Tea for Grandparents in the Tamahere Community Centre.  Children will enjoy their own morning tea play outside as normal.


11:00am: Children back to class.

11:15am: A sharing and ‘fun time’ will be held in the classroom.  Please feel free to move between the rooms if you have more than one grandchild to visit.

12:20pm: Lunch.  You are welcome to have lunch with your Grandchild.

1:15pm: Students return to their classrooms.


Thank you to our Taupiri parents for providing a plate for our Grandparents Morning Tea.  Please keep a look out for a slip from our PTA with more details on preferences for each class.  Our morning tea is always a special highlight for our Grandparents and we appreciate your help.

Thank you for taking the time to come and enjoy this special day.  

With thanks,

The Staff of Tamahere Model Country School
