Grandparents Day- On Monday 20th!

posted Jun 15, 2016, 8:38 PM by Reception @TMCS

We are looking forward to our annual Grandparents Day!  This is a wonderful opportunity to honour and show appreciation for the grandparents in our children's lives and to celebrate the special relationship they have with their grandchildren.  We understand that it is not always possible for each of our children to have a grandparent attend, and in these cases a special family friend or relative is welcome to attend.

We are trialling a slightly different format for Grandparents Day this year as follows:




9:10 - 10:00 am

Morning Tea*

*Rolling morning tea: come when you can and enjoy a morning tea treat with us.

Thank you to our Taupiri Classes for providing the food.


Tamahere Community Centre Foyer

10:00 - 10:50 am


TCC - Main Hall

10:50 - 11:10 am

Morning Tea*

This year Grandparents will join their Grandchildren for a walk around the school, a chat and a sit in the sun - hopefully!

*All students are encouraged to have extra treats in their lunch box to share with their Grandparents.

Playground & around the school*

Classrooms if a wet day

11:10 am - 12:20 pm


Grandparents visit their grandchildren’s respective classrooms.

Please note: Times are indicative only and may change as we adapt to what is best for our special  flexi day.
