23 August 2018 - Before the Grandparents Appreciation Day, the children made invitation cards to invite their Grandparents to school. The day before, with the help of parent volunteers, the children also made cookies for their grandparents. They put their hearts and hands together to bake and pack the cookies into pretty cookie bags.
24 August 2018 - Grandparents Appreciation Day. As part of our SSDB’s effort to inculcate the value of respect and care towards the elderly, we invited our Grandparents to our school to have a bonding session with their grandchildren. After a tea reception hosted by the parent volunteers, the grandparents were treated with a splendid performance by the children. The children performed a Fan Dance to the music of 茉莉花, sang the Malay song “Buring Kakak Tua” and ended with a Hokkien song 真正好 - to the delight and applause of the Grandparents.
The Grandparents Appreciation Day ended with a fun bonding activity between the grandparents and grandchildren. Armed with creative juices, the grandparents dressed up their grandchildren with recycled materials such as newspapers, plastic bags and tapes.
It was indeed heartwarming to see the bond between grandparents and their grandchildren - PICTURE PERFECT and PRECIOUS MOMENTS!
