Portland Primary School hosted a grandparents appreciation brunch at Portland High School hall on Wednesday October 10. Principal Eleanor Braaf said it was a feel-good event to thank grandparents, aged 60 and older, who support, give guidance, morals and values to the pupils. She said the event had been in the pipeline for many years and that finally it materialised.

“We’ve had positive feedback and we hope that it will grow each year,” she said.
