Grandparents Day

On Friday 26th July, we celebrated Grandparents Day with a mass. Our grandparents are very special people. They have many stories about our families and our communities. Grandparents Day is a great reminder for us to ask our grandparents about their memories, family traditions and to spend time with them to create new memories!

 Below is a special prayer for grandparents.

Grandparents are a family’s greatest treasure,
The founders of a loving legacy, the greatest storytellers,
The keepers of traditions that linger on in cherished memory.
Grandparents are the family’s strong foundation.
Their very special love sets them apart.
Through happiness and sorrow,
through their special love and caring,
Grandparents keep a family close at heart.

    I love my grandparents because they read us story’s and cook me delicious food my memory with my grandparents is when i was young my mum and dad were at work so my grandparents took me too shops and the park but sadly now my grandparents are at my home country. something nice i could do is since my grandparents aren’t in Australia i will call the twice a week to see how they are doing and take time to listen to their jokes and story’s!

    Sincerely,
    Josephine

    • Hi Josephine,

      They are very lovely memories that you have of your grandparents. I think they would love to hear your voice on the phone and perhaps you could also send them cards in the post.

      Kind regards,

      Miss Azzopardi

    Dear miss Azzopardi and 5W,

    I love my grandma because she was the only grandparent that was in Australia and was still alive when i was 3 years old but sadly she passed away though I still love a lot. I love my Grandma because she always use to talk to me a lot and she is really kind. I remember my grandma use to always talk to me and when i ralk really loud in the nursing home she would keep on putting her finger on her lips to make me be quiet. I also remember my grandma would always give a lollie when i get into trouble.

    Sincerley,

    Dear 5 White and Miss Azzopardi,

    I love my grandparents because they take care of me and help me when i’m hurt or sad. One of my greatest memories was when we went to the park, had a picnic and played games.

    Sincerely,
    Amanda

  4. Dear 5W & Miss Azzopardi,

    What I like about is everything!!!!! The love and care for me, they do everything you could imagine 🙂 I remember ages ago we all went to a shop and they got everything for me it was the best thing ever! Everyone would laugh at them but they didn’t care at all! Something I could do for my grandparents is helping them at home because they are very helpful.

    Sincerely,
    Andrea

    I’ve had heaps of memories of my grandparents like when they used to give me horse rides and how they used to take me to the park with my two dogs, bluey and pop-eye, unfortunately my grandfather died 7 years ago from a heart attack (that’s why whenever I see a packet of cigarettes in my dad’s pocket I always throw it away)

    sincerely
    Moufid

  6. Dear 5W and Miss Azzopardi,
    I absolutely love Grandparents Day! It’s such a nice time to remember all the little things they have done for you.What I love about them is that, they always give me heaps of love and they always congratulate me when I get an award. I remember when they got me loads of things for my birthday! I would like to do is:
    – Give them a big hug
    – Give them a kiss on the cheek
    – Say I love you

    What do you like about grandparents day?,

    Dear 5 White and Miss Azzopardi,

    I absolutely love my grandparents! It is a nice and great day for grandparents! The memories I had with my grandparents are my grandpa and grandma taking me to a park and having fun with me at my mum’s birthday party! Something we all can do for our grandparents are:
    *Saying kind words to them such as I love you!
    *Having as great day with them such as spending time with them.
    *Treating them the best you can!
    However I can’t do those things with my grandparents, they unfortunately died. I hope other people treat their grandparent well!

    Sincerely,
    Kong

    dear Miss Azzopardi and five white,

    I love my grandparents because they are very welcoming and loving and they are always there when I need them. When I was younger me my cousins and my brother used to brush my grandpas hair and we used to pretend that we were hairdressers and now we have a baby cousin named Giorgio and he always brushes my grandpas hair! Sometimes I help my grandma when she is cooking or I can help my grandpa when he is watering the plants. something that I could do which will be nice for my grandparents is to always be there when they need me! 🙂

    Your sincerely,
    Angel

  19. Tony

    Dear Five White and Miss Azzopardi,

    I LOVE my Grandparents because they are nice to me, they always buy me stuff and they are loving and caring to me and my sisters. Everyone should appreciate having Grandparents because some people do not have Grandparents and sometimes people disrespect their Grandparents after all they have done for them. So I really think people should show appreciation and love their Grandparents.

    King Regards,
    Tony

    Dear 5W and Miss Azzopardi,

    I love my grandparents!!!
    The thing i love about my grandparents is that they always do everything for me, like my grandparents would take me anywhere i wanted to go any time.A nice memory with my grandparents is when they always would buy a pack full of a drink called Mr. Juicy and i would always drink it and they always hide it away from me. Every single day i would go to the kitchen and look everywhere for it and eventually i would find it.
    I nice thing i would love to do for my grandparents is give them a morning breakfast 🙂
    I will always say this prayer:
