The aim was to celebrate the role older relatives and friends play in a child’s life and celebrate their contribution to the community.

Head teacher Peter Byrne said: “Parishes and schools are being encouraged to raise the profile of grandparents, or adults that play a similar role in a child’s life, and celebrate them and their their contribution to the communities in which they live, and support them in their role.”

Students invited their grandparents to attend a short liturgy, followed by a performance from the school choir, refreshments and then a tour of the school with their grandchildren.
