Flowers and tea for Mother's Day at St Joseph's School

Last Friday St Joseph's School hosted a special event to celebrate Mother's Day.

The day started with a special school assembly presented by the Year 5 class including a play and poem paying tribute to all mums.

Following the assembly, the students were very excited to take their mums to the undercover area and serve them tea and coffee.

As well as a delicious morning tea, mums also received a small posy of flowers as a gift from the school.

School principal Andrea Woodgate said the morning tea was a great way to celebrate all that is special about mothers.

"We also paid tribute to the grandmothers, aunties and carers who play a significant role in the lives of our children," Mrs Woodgate said.

"The very large crowd made the morning very special as the children took great pride in serving their female role model some delicious food.

"It was heart-warming to see so many generations of strong women in one place."

The morning tea was hosted by the school and organised by school chaplain, Michelle Johnson, and her very many helpers.

Family is a big focus of the school and Mother's Day and Father's Day events have always been special for the students.

Each year these events are getting bigger and bigger.
