Grandparents appreciation day

Members of the band which entertained the elders were Chadley Hamilton on trumpet, Stanton Williams on electric guitar, Geovanty de Lange on guitar, and Casey Marks. They are Beacon Hills first band and members are all self-taught.

Beacon Hill High School made sure the grandparents of the pupils at their school felt appreciated and pampered at a special event hosted for them. Athraah Salie, a teacher at Beacon Hill and the school’s public relations manager, said in many cases, the grandparents were the sole providers in their households. “The grandparents are the people looking out for their children. Most of the pupils refer to their grandparents when it is parent meeting time. They have already raised their own children, they now have to raise the next generation too,” said Ms Salie.
