More than 200 grandparents went back to school last week for St Monica’s College’s annual grandparents day.

Year 7 students invited their grandparents to come to school last Wednesday and Thursday for morning tea.

The elders were given a tour of the school and recital from the year 7 college band.

Principal Brian Hanley said the day was a highlight with students, and more than 120 grandparents had come along on each day.

“Year 7 is an exciting time as the students progress from primary to secondary education,” he said.
