Grandparents Day

May 19, 2018 | Kiwi – Year 1 Blog

It was a very special morning at Wentworth Primary yesterday.  Our Grandparents and whanau came into school.  It was a pleasure sharing our classroom with our family and it was lovely hearing about some of the experiences our grandparents had when they were at school.

We were shocked and bemused at the notion of ‘the cane’ as a form of discipline.
One grandparent shared some photos of their school, calf club, milk bottles and dress-up day.
We heard a little about school in China……we were surprised to hear that there were 60 children in ONE class!

We loved hearing about waiting outside before school, having to sing the national anthem whilst the NZ flag was raised and then marching into class.  Very different to our morning!

One of our Karearea class members was delighted to receive a video message and a letter from grandparents whom are overseas.  This certainly made a few eyes in the room moisten…….mine definitely!

Thank you to the Karearea families for visiting with us today.  We are privileged to have you in our lives and you are such an important part of our learning journey.  Thank you for taking the time to share our morning with us and feel free to stop by ANYTIME!
