Grandparents' Lunches 2022

It has been a pleasure to be able to invite Grandparents' back into school to have lunch with their grandchildren now that Covid restrictions have been lifted.

Over the last two weeks, from Monday 14th November until Friday 25th November, we have welcomed approximately 20 grandparents a day who have booked in to have lunch with their grandchildren.

Grandparents have been able to enjoy a range of meal choices including Roast Chicken or Quorn Fillet and Yorkshire Pudding, Handmade Pizza Margherita or Sweet Chilli Chicken, Carrot Cake, Chocolate Fudge Cake, Iced Sponge and Pink Sauce, and much, much more!

We have had some lovely feedback from grandparents who have enjoyed the opportunity to have a school dinner with their grandchild/ren and see them in the school environment. Here is an example of one of the thank-you cards that we received:

Dear Mr Marks,

We are writing to thank you so very much for inviting us to join our granddaughter for lunch in Orton Wistow School on Wednesday.

We had an amazing time from the moment we went through the school gates to leaving the school.  The teachers, Teaching Assistants, and Catering Staff were incredible, and the food was excellent.  We both left the school on such a 'high'.

Our grandchild has just started her educational journey, but we feel that in the few weeks that she has been attending she has learnt so much, and is really enjoying the experience.

Our grandchild, we are certain, will develop remarkably from the care, help and support of Orton Wistow School.  Thanks to you and all of the staff once again.
