Thank you to everyone who downloaded the event resource kit (over 45 of you from almost 45 different locations) to create an event to recognise the huge contribution that grandparents, older carers and kin make to their families, their communities and to the Northern Territory. We heard of some wonderful events including stay and play days, morning teas, intergenerational events including high school students v seniors quizzes and grandies’ days in pre-school.
However you celebrated, we hope you enjoyed the time spent with loved ones and are all set to say thank you again next year on Sunday 29th October 2023 (or thereabouts).
COTA offers its thanks again to the Northern Territory Government for sponsoring our three year commitment to celebrating Grandparents Day in the Northern Territory. Check into the site for news on 2023!
