Have you ever wondered about the origin of Father’s Day?
Father’s Day is celebrating its 111th Anniversary this year on June 19th, and it all began when a young woman wanted to honour her father.
Ever since that first Father’s Day we have been honouring our own fathers every year for all their love and dedication to their families.
What did Princeton do to honour our fathers this year?
The Starfish class
Our cutest Starfish will show their love to dad by giving him a hand-made tie and expressing their love in a video with the help of their loving teachers.
The Bear class
Our little bears celebrated our fathers in a Superhero theme. Each dad will receive their own Superhero figure and to top it all off, the Bears made their fathers a delicious sandwich to show their appreciation.
The Giraffe class
The Giraffes went all out with their hand made superhero capes! We are certain that their “Super” dads will look the part when they put them on. “Our fathers are always there to save the day.” Said the students of the Giraffe class.
The Rabbit class
Our Rabbits made a very personal gift to dad. Their father’s will be honoured with a personalised picture frame with a picture of themselves and their dad. The students couldn’t wait to show their dads the gift they made in honour of their fathers.
The Elephant class
The Elephants put their own personal touch on a hand printed pot plant! They painted their own hands, printed it on a cardboard that looks like a pot and decorated the picture into a beautiful pot plant.
The Parrot class
Every parrot made a trophy for their fathers using only their artistic abilities and love. The trophy symbolizes that their dad is No. 1 in their lives. The students are going to use this trophy as Father’s day card to give as a token of their love and appreciation for their fathers.
The Lion class
Our proud Lions made a beautiful Father’s day card in the shape of a shirt and tie. The students expressed that their fathers are their role models and they look up to them for guidance and support. The Lions also made a personal video that they will share with the parents on Father’s Day.
The Ladybug class & The Koala class
The Ladybugs and Koalas will honour their dads with a hand-made mosaic coaster. This work of art took a lot of precision and hard work.
Koalas also played the game ‘Guess the dad!’.
We hope we succeeded in showing our gratitude and appreciation to all our hard working fathers! Thank you for taking care of us, protecting us and loving us in a way that only a dad can.
We love you dad!
