Grandparents' Day 2020: Sowing the Seeds of Love
On Wednesday 29th January 2020 gave St. Teresa’s National school in Kilflynn, an opportunity to celebrate Grandparent’s Day. Grandparents play an integral role in children’s lives, offering support and love unconditionally. It is for this reason that they deserve a day of celebration.
Grandparents were invited to a mass in St. Mary’s Church, Kilflynn where our pupils read, played and sang beautifully. Following mass, an invitation was extended to all present in the church to visit the school for refreshments. A large gathering of parents and grandparents were entertained by the school’s fantastic musicians, each class prepared a piece to recite, sing or play for their grandparents and they enjoyed a tour of the school and its facilities. Children were very excited to show off their school and classrooms to their grandparents. 
Grandparents received a gift of seeds to symbolise ‘A grandparents love that is strong and deep, filled with memories to cherish and keep’. We hope that they will spend some quality time together planting these seeds and make some new special memories. We remembered all our Grandparents who are no longer with us and these seeds can also be planted in their memory.
School principal Nora Falvey would like to thank the school’s Parents’ Association for all their help on the day and hopes that all the grandparents enjoyed their day and hopes to see them all again next year.
