There was great excitement in our school last week for Grandparents Day – one of the most popular days for everybody in our school year. We welcomed Grandparents from the locality but also from as far away as Sligo, Mayo and Dublin. The day kicked off with our Grandparents enjoying the displays of work done by our pupils about Grandparents. It was lovely to see the photos of Grandparents who are present in their grandchildrens’ lives and those who unfortunately cannot... All Grandparents are very special in our community and perhaps the most poignant part of the day was reading out some of the children’s work who had been asked in class if they could speak to anybody alive or dead, famous or not – who would it be and what would they ask? A number of children would love to have gotten the opportunity to interview their Grandparents who are no longer with us, or who they never actually got to meet. If given the opportunity: Children would have liked to ask them the important questions that children do – like what does heaven and God look like? Is heaven on a cloud? Do they have sweets and cars in heaven? Were their children really good when they were young or do they just pretend they were?! Most earnestly, they wanted to know if their Grandparents would like to be back on Earth to give them hugs again? Canon Tony Mullins said a beautiful mass following by tea and cake. . A very special day was had by all. God bless all our wonderful Grandparents.
