BUNDABERG Christian College students took the opportunity to enjoy a day a school with their grandparents as the school held its annual Grandparents Day yesterday.
Bundaberg Christian College principal Mark Bensley said the day was about celebrating and honouring grandparents.
"We believe the school is a family and it's not just immediate family members but also grandparents that are part of our family," Mr Bensley said.
"The students really look forward to this day every year.
"It's one of the highlights on our calendar."
Mr Bensley said the day was also about thanking the grandparents and recognising the influence they had on their grandchildren.
"Children are a reflection of their parents and grandparents," he said.
"A lot of the parents and grandparents also pray for the students and the school and this is a way to say thank you."
As part of the day, the grandparents were able to see how things had changed since they were at school, by spending some time in the classroom, before attending a special concert and morning tea.
Great grandparents Norma and Neville Just attended the day to see their great-grandchild, five-year-old Shannon Spotswood.
The Justs said the school's Grandparents Day was a lovely idea.
"It's been really special and I feel so proud," Mrs Just said.
"It's wonderful to be able to see what they are doing at school because they never tell you when you ask.
"School has definitely changed for the better since I was at school and things are a lot more fun."
