WHEN Bailey Flanagan spotted a familiar face in the crowd at Warwick East State School's Grandparents Day, she could barely contain her excitement.

The eight-year-old's grandmother, Michelle, travelled from Kyogle on Tuesday to pull off a surprise visit with her adoring granddaughter.

Mrs Flanagan said she could barely contain her excitement and fought back tears when she saw the delight on Bailey's face.

"Bailey called me and asked me to come so I got my work done and thought, 'that's it, I'm going'," she said.

The two remained entwined for most of the morning, with Bailey reluctant to let go of Grandma.

The guests were treated to a delicious morning tea and the school choir kept the crowds entertained.

School chaplain Donna Angell said the day was about honouring the special loved ones.

"Grandparents Day is a chance for children and the community to thank grandparents for their love and support," she said.
