Grandpals Intergenerational Program

Elementary School students connect with the residents

Avalon Care Centre- Orangeville, Ontario

As part of an Intergenerational program, two grade 4 classes from St. Andrews school implemented a Grandpalís program. Students paired up with residents to interview, learn and ask questions weekly over a two month period about their resident. They put together a booklet with their experiences with their Grandpal and presented it to them on their last visit. Some students even presented their projects to the whole group. The interaction and positive feedback and connection with their Grandpalís made for a successful and rewarding experience for both the students and the residents. Thank you Mrs. Ledda & Mrs. Kingstone for providing Avalon with this wonderful opportunity!
