Grandparents

Welcome Canterbury Grandparents!

Canterbury School is pleased to showcase our new Grandparents Council (GPC) with the purpose of better connecting grandparents to our school community. Grandparents have always been a welcome presence at Canterbury through activities like our annual Grandparents and Grandfriends Day. Through this new GPC, we hope to expand opportunities to engage this vital part of our Canterbury community.
