Grandparents Kit 1


Grandparents are of unique importance in family life generally and particularly in the transmission of faith through the generations. They provide children with a stability and sense of identity and continuity. Many grandparents are also significant carers in the lives of their grandchildren, sometimes even the primary carer.

A ‘grandparents day’ is an increasingly popular event in the calendar of schools. Evidently it is appreciated by both students and their grandparents. It is a simple and powerful way to affirm and encourage family life and the transmission of the faith.

We are delighted to offer you this resource to assist you in supporting the grandparent figures in your wider school community. It comes with the desire of the Bishops of Australia to see every family flourish as an effective community of Christ’s love
