Grandparents Day @ Crawford Pre-Primary, North Coast

Grandparents Day

Grandparents are our legacy and form a vital and irreplaceable part of our families. To celebrate the invaluable contribution they make to the lives of their grandchildren, Crawford Pre-Primary North Coast hosted its Grandparents to a spectacular morning. The children honoured their Grandparents by expressing their love for these very special family members through song and music. There were plenty of hugs and kisses all round as the Grandparents relished the opportunity to share in the lives of their little darlings at school.

Grandparents Day for Foundation Phase

Our Foundation Phase has also enjoyed a busy time in the classroom and the highlight was Grandparents’ Day. It meant a great deal to our Grade 1 to 3 pupils to be able to share a part of their school day with Granny and Grandpa. They simply loved every minute.

“Truly Grandparents are wonderful in so many ways, Special people who always seem to brighten our days”.

 

Crawford Track the Torch

What a fantastic week it was. Our Management Team was lucky enough to attend the launch of the Crawford Olympic Torch that will be passed to each Crawford Campus in support of our 5 Crawfordian Olympic Swimmers. Our parade to the Pre School was a very festive, colourful and happy occasion.

 

Rio Carnival fever has taken over our school in celebration of the upcoming Olympics and our 5 Crawfordians who will be taking part.

Fathers Day – Amazing Race

“FATHERS DAY 2016” – The Amazing Race, what a way to begin the week. With a continuation of the spoiling of Dad from the weekend, the morning began early on the stands. With coffee in hand ±200 fathers awaited the instructions from Justin Paynter. Kerri Gallan, the inspiration behind the concept, and several staff members were already out in the field awaiting the arrival of the Dads and children. The first instruction given to the Dads was to find your own child, and for many this proved to be a challenge on its own. Once the children had been located, the first clue was given and the race was on! The aim was to get to Lifestyle and purchase a tin of cat food and another for a dog, pick up the next clue which took them to a delivery point at Westbrook beach. The SPCA and the Feral Cat Society will most definitely benefit from the huge contribution. Digging a hole in the beach sand, covering your child’s legs, and taking a selfie, concluded the third clue. The teams ran to the end of the beach for a much needed treat before returning to school. The reward of seeing the faces of Dads and their children laughing and discussing the event, was enough to conclude that a lot of fun was had by all.
