Grandies you are so loved by your little Grandies

I like to go in the pool with Nan. Phoenix aged 6

We have had a tremendous response to our Grandparents Day I Love Grandie competition and can’t wait to formally showcase entries at our Grandparents day Celebration event on Sunday 31st October.

With inspiring, beautiful and bright entries from students across the Northern Territory, it’s going to be a tough job picking winners. To all the Principals and Teachers who have supported their students in celebrating their Grandies, thank you! We will publish the full list of acknowledgements to our wonderful schools when we have finished compiling entries.

Grandies you are loved!

You have so many names – Grandma, Pop, Grandad, Nanna, Nanny, Grandpa, Nana, Poppy,  Nan – but you are all pretty great and grand in the eyes of your family.
