Celebrating Grandparents

On Sunday 25 October we celebrate Grandparents Day.

In 2011, the Australian Bureau of Statistics reported that close to one million Australian children receive care from a grandparent on a regular basis.

Please take some time on Sunday 25 October to celebrate grandparents. You could plan a family picnic, a special morning tea, or say a special prayer for them.

Grandparents Day recognises the contribution grandparents make not only to the lives of their children and grandchildren, but to our community. Their work often goes unrecognised or unacknowledged, so on Grandparents Day join us in saying thank you to grandparents for their love and support.

For more information about this special day, visit the Queensland Government Grandparents Day webpage.
