Back to school for MRIS Grandparents!

More than 70 MRIS grandparents enjoyed spending time at school recently for the 5th Annual MRIS Grandparent Day.
Following a delicious morning tea, the group shared their favourite childhood books, listened to the school choir, and visited the classrooms to spend time with their Grandchildren.
Principal Wendy Roediger said the idea of holding a ‘Grandparents Day’ was to promote inclusivity, community bonds and provide an opportunity to meet other MRIS Grandparents.
“The event was a was huge success with a large turnout of Grandparents… We really value the input MRIS Grandparents have on our students and our school and we like to offer them the chance to come on campus to volunteer their services whether it be helping with reading, working in the gardens or sharing their skills.”
