On the 11th of May 2016 it was Grandparent’s Day at ACG Strathallan. At the beginning of Grandparent’s Day all the students gathered in the hall. The grandparents have taken time off work, or their holiday to see this mini concert.
The excited students performed to the grandparents. The junior choir sang Zippidie-Do-Da and then the entire school sang, “I Do not Like Green Eggs and Ham.” Then the marimba group performed a piece but unfortunately Ms Leggett, the music teacher, was not there to see this all fall into place.
After the performances in the hall, the grandparents spent time with their grandchildren in the classroom. They shared their own experiences of what schooldays were like for them and compared this to what they saw happening in the classroom today. IPads and computers were very new to many of them. “When I was young classes were over forty children but I was at a country school, where all ages were in the same class,” said Mrs Daniel. The students of ACG Strathallan got to show their grandparent(s) around the school including the playground and vegetable garden.
After this adventure around ACG Strathallan the grandparents went to have morning tea back in the hall and return to normal life.
