GRANDFRIENDS: Bridging the Generational Gap at Brightwaters Christian School

Once a week Brightwaters Christian School invites older members of the community to participate in their Grandfriends program.

With an aim to bridge the generational gap and build healthy relationships, kindy students meet with their ‘Grandfriends’ to talk to and share stories for 45 minutes once a week throughout the school term.

We chatted with the kids, the grand friends and some of the people involved in putting the program together.
