Grandparent’s Day

Knockainey National School

On Friday 3rd of February 2023 we celebrated Grandparent’s Day as part of Catholic Schools week.

Mass was held in Knockainey Church at 11am. We had the most beautiful ceremony to celebrate our Grandparents. Each class from the school attended the church where we performed tin whistle led by Ms. Morris, Ukulele led by Fran Stone and congregational singing which filled the church with love. We thank Ms. Foley for preparing the choir for this.

Throughout the week, each child worked on ‘Memory Frames’ to present to their grandparents. We reflected on fond memories each child has of their Grandparents. We also understand that this is a difficult time for all who are remembering those whom they have lost, yet nice to cherish the memories.

Following Mass everyone was invited back to the school for some light refreshments. This gave an opportunity for our Grandparents to have a look around the school whilst reminiscing on many memories that they have have here themselves.


The Grandparents Garden was a popular spot for selfies and family photos. A picture that each family will cherish to have. We thank all those who attended and took part.
