Grandparents are often the glue of any family. Our students and staff, under the leadership of our dedicated Heritage Language team, were hoping to show their appreciation for the contribution of these valued women and men in our lives. On Thursday, December 12th, we will be hosting an Italian Christmas Celebration in honour of our grandparents and seniors in the greater St. Cecilia community. We feel blessed to be welcoming back the senior citizens from Friuli Terrace, who attended last year’s performance. The event will begin at approximately 10:30 a.m. and consist of a number of songs, dances, and performances from our student body. It will be followed by an Italian Lunch in the library for all of our seniors, and may include a few games of Tombola or Briscola, as well. We recall with great fondness the joy, emotion, and personal connections made at last year’s event and are looking forward to the next chapter in this powerful tradition. We would feel honoured to have grandparents within the SCA community join us for the event. It truly is a blessed time of the year.
