Head of School’s Comment

John Colet School, Belrose, Sydney

Our students and staff enjoyed having our visitors at school this week for Grandparents’ Day. We welcomed over 120 visitors in total, including a few great grandparents! We have been unable to hold this bi-annual event since 2019, and it has been sorely missed. We do encourage our grandparents to return for some of the events that are still to come this year, such as our Shakespeare Festivals and Open Day.

We spoke to our students last week about the fact that not all grandparents are with us, close enough or healthy enough to visit. Those students that did have one or two attend were very happy to share!
