GRANDPARENTS of children at St Brendan’s NS in Blennerville were made to feel special on Wednesday when the school hosted a day dedicated to them.

A short prayer service was held and pupils read poems and sang songs before the adults enjoyed some refreshments. It’s a day both pupils and grandparents look forward to said Principal Robbie O’Connell.

“It’s really to recognise the important role grandparents play in their lives. Pupils been preparing for the visit for the past week creating artwork and writing poems which hung around the hall today. It also makes them think about how much their grandparents do for them in their daily lives.”

And Robbie said the grandparents also really enjoyed the day, getting a good look at the school.

“Some of the grandparents may not have seen the school before, with some coming from as far away as Galway and Dublin for today. This year we decided to bring them into the classroom to see where their grandchild is sitting and to look at their artwork,” said the Principal. Scroll down for photos…
