The boys from the two Junior Infant classes at St John the Baptist BNS welcomed their grandparents to school on Wednesday, January 28, as part of Catholic Schools Week. Grannies and grandads came from near and far to be with the boys for this special occasion. Two grandparents even travelled all the way from the Kingdom of Kerry!

The boys sang songs and recited nursery rhymes for their special guests. They then played games with them including marbles and made jigsaw puzzles. One grandparent played the guitar much to the delight of the boys.

After all that hard work, the boys and their grandparents enjoyed a well deserved treat. Chocolate for the boys and tea, scones and biscuits for the grandparents. A special word of thanks to class teachers Mrs Kathleeen Bane and Ms Caitríona Crosse for their work in organising this very special occasion. It was evident that the boys bring great joy to their grandparents and vice versa.
