allow the users to view the calendar

I have a group policy applied that prevent normal users from changing the system time, when they try to open date/time they couldn't, only administrators can view and change system time.
I need the normal users when they open date/time to be able to onlyview the clock and calendar, but not change it. is it posiible?

To get access to the control panel applet, users nead to be granted the right to change system time by modifying the following policy setting in local policy or a GPO linked to the OU with computer objects.
Computer Configuration\Windows Settings\Security Settings\Local Policies\User Rights Assignment\Change the system time

The default value for the policy setting is administrators+'power users' on workstations/member servers, and administrators+'server operators' on domain controllers.

To avoid that users mess by changing the date/time, you can do the following:
* Configure time syncronization by using 'net time /setsntp:<time source>'
* Modify logon script to use 'net time %logonserver% /set /y'
