Grandparents and Special Friends Lunch

The end of January/early February, is a special time at Holy Rosary School because it’s the week we celebrate Catholic Schools! Every day there is a special activity to celebrate our community. On the Wednesday of Catholic Schools Week, Holy Rosary hosts our annual Grandparents & Special Friends Lunch. It is a lovely tradition of generations enjoying an afternoon together. We are looking forward to the day when this tradition will continue, until then please enjoy the video below to celebrate our Grandparents & Special Friends. Students were asked to share a memory they have or activity they remember with their Grandparents or Special Friends. Hope you enjoy!

If you would like to make a donation to our Annual Fund, to help bridge the gap between tuition charged and the cost to educate our students, then please do so here. THANK YOU!

If the video images pass too quickly and you would like more time to read through the students’ memories, we encourage you to hit pause on the video.
