It was an action-packed day for Middle and Senior Years grandparents today when they joined their granddaughters for Grandparents’ Day. Grandparents arrived earlier than in the past as there was so much to squeeze into one day. The Year 7 and 8 girls proudly displayed their Science experiments and research work at the Science Fair. Special guest, USQ Lecturer Dr Carolyn Brown was our guest speaker and she awarded the prizes. The Year 9 grandparents enjoyed a digital presentation and performance in Manning Theatre and Senior Years grandparents attended lessons.
After a quick morning tea complete with entertainment by the Performing Arts girls, the grandparents settled down to watch the Ballgames Carnival on the oval. Congratulations to Tufnell who won the games. Some of our grandparents got involved to compete in the Grandparents’ Cup. Congratulations to Donaldson for winning the Grandparents Cup. The trophies were proudly presented by Glennie Old Girl mrs Melanie Reiman.
After all that activity it was time for a picnic lunch in the Centenary Gardens with yet more entertainment by the Performing Arts students.
Some grandparents went home after lunch and some stayed to watch all the fun of the Colour Run that was held by the Glennie Sports Supporters to raise funds for the new Sport and Health Centre.
Thank you to all the grandparents who came to spend the day with their granddaughters. A special thank you goes to Mrs Tracey Kessels for co-ordinating the day and to all the staff who helped in so many ways on the day.
