Grandparents and “grandfriends” are often deeply committed to our students’ education, and Punahou recognizes the invaluable role they play in supporting their families.

Grandparent Council

Formed in September 2015, the Grandparent Leadership Council helps Punahou School engage current grandparents in the life of the school. The Grandparent Leadership Council offers valuable guidance on ways for Punahou to better connect with the grandparent community, encourages grandparent participation in the life of the School, and seeks to raise awareness of the educational priorities of the Ku‘u Punahou Campaign for Punahou School.
