Mothers, carers and female role models were celebrated by Northam Clontarf Academy and Wirrpanda Foundation students last week.

The Mother's Day morning tea last Friday was prepared by students who cooked sausage roles, scones quiches and slices.

The ladies were treated to the treats and cups of tea and coffee made by their children.

Students also made jars of home made chilli chutney as a thank you to the women in their lives.

Northam Clontarf director Shannon Dixon and Aboriginal Islander education officer Lee Mallyon said without the support of parents the staff cannot do their jobs as effectively.

They thanked all who came along to the first of it's kind event at the school.

The Clontarf Foundation works to improve the education, discipline, life skills, self-esteem and employment prospects of young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander men.
