Grandparents and Special Friends

Grandparents and Special Friends

Grandparents and Special Friends play a vital role in our community, as loving supporters of our students and their education. We are honoured to have the privilege of growing your most precious assets—your grandchildren.
RHA is known for its amazing community and that is because of the people. This year, with COVID-19, we are unable to have visitors in the school, but will invite all Grandparents and Special Friends to participate in ceremonies through Zoom when we can.
RHA always works on making its community welcoming and inviting. Get to know your fellow grandparents and special friends through a drop-in program.
We are planning a number of virtual activities this year to bring our community together. Stay tuned for more details!
Canasta Thursdays are led by fellow grandparents on the following dates from 2:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.
  • October 17
  • March 12
  • June 11

Nachas Circle

Grandparents have a special place in the family and in the lives of their grandchildren. Nachas Circle is an intergenerational movement that helps shape your legacy and your grandchildren's education.
Every child has someone special in their family that plays a special role in their lives (for example, an aunt or uncle, family friend, neighbour). We invite these Special Friends to also take part in our Nachas Club.
