Grandparent’s can be key members of a child’s family. Many grandparents are heavily involved in the lives of their grandchildren from picking them up from school to part-time or full-time care.
Grandparent’s can provide unconditional love, support, patience, family traditions and life lessons.
NSW Grandparents Day is held every year on the last Sunday in October and this year we celebrated on Sunday 28th October at Parker Park in Kingswood.
NCNS provided a range of activities aimed to engage, interact and show appreciation to our grandparents who play a huge role in loving, caring, nurturing and guiding us from the day we are born.
Families participated in a guessing competition, knock down activities, they got to have a photo for the day, create a beautiful photo frame, and were also provided with information about our services.
We had so many grandparents come to have a photo with their grandchildren, capturing memories that they could take home with them. It was wonderful to see grandparents and grandchildren sitting side by side decorating photo frames to place their treasured photo from the day.
One child gushed “I don’t get to see my grandmother much cause she lives far away but now I can put this next to my bed and look at her every day!” Our hearts are melting!
