The weather gods shone brightly on Marryatville High for our annual grandparents’ day on Wednesday 11 March. The stunning autumn morning only added to an event which is always a highlight of our school event calendar.
Approximately 100 grandparents and special people spent time with their year 8 Marryatville student, hearing from the year 8 class captains about how life is for a 2020 year 8 student at our school. Guests were treated to an informal stroll around the school with their year 8 student, accompanied by members of our student representative council who were on hand to answer any questions.
Another highlight of the morning was the excellent quality of musical items presented by our specialist music students. A solo by Ashton Platt, in which he performed his own composition, was followed up by two bands who played on The Flat while the guests enjoyed their morning tea, arranged by the MHS Parents and Friends committee. Hot scones were made by the year 12 food and hospitality class and our year 10 food and event management class served and assisted in the management of the event.
We value the contribution of all our community, and the accompanying photos would certainly suggest that the guests valued their opportunity to gain a little more insight into how their young person spends their time at Marryatville.
