THE new initiative of grandparents' day at Karuah Public School has proved to be a popular annual occasion.
School principal Rod Pye said that it was particularly special to see families get together on the day who had been attending the school for up to six generations.
Mr Pye said about 60 grandparents attended the event which took place throughout the day last Friday.
"It's a really nice way to connect with the local community," he said.
The day began with a welcome assembly and poems about grandparents being read out to the audience by the pupils.
The students then had interview style conversations with their grandparents back in the classrooms to learn a little about what school life was like back when their grandparents attended.
"It gave the grandparents a chance to engage in a bit of classroom learning," Mr Pye said.
The days events culminated in a mini fete and fundraiser where $15000 was raised for the year five and sixes annual Canberra trip.
