GRANDPARENTS enjoyed a blast from the past when they went back to school for the day at Scone Grammar on Friday.
The school holds Grandparents Day to bring children and grandparents together and to show grandparents what has been going on in the classroom.
Headmaster Paul Smart explained it was a kindergarten to Year 12 initiative, though the majority of grandparents belonged to the primary school students.
The day was comprised of several proceedings.
“Grandparents spent some time during the day in the classroom and participated in the lesson,” Mr Smart said. “A morning tea was served and catering was supplied by families of the school.
“This is then followed by a concert with numerous musical and dance items to display talents.”
On the program to entertain the audience was a Scottish cèilidh, choir performances and a dance item by student Jason Buckley which was a mixture of ballet and gymnastics.
After time in the classroom grandparents had the option of taking their grandchild out to lunch or picnic on school grounds.
Mr Smart said the day is held purposely on a Friday to enable grandparents to travel to Scone if necessary and to then be able to stay over the weekend.
