Holy Name celebrates Mother’s Day by welcoming in the mums

On Friday, May 11 students at Holy Name School were blessed to enjoy the company of many of their mums and grandmothers at the annual Holy Name School Mother’s Day celebration.

The day began at 7:30am with a beautiful breakfast, prepared by the Holy Name School staff and served in the school hall.

On offer were hot croissants, fresh fruit salad, raisin toast and muesli.

The mums, grandmothers and other significant women in the students lives came together with students and staff to celebrate and acknowledge the remarkable women we often call ‘mum’.

On display in the school hall were the Mother’s Day portraits that students have been working on for this special event.

Mums, together with their children and extended family were able to relax after breakfast and chat over a cuppa whilst enjoying a powerpoint presentation featuring the school’s lovely mothers.

Following the breakfast, some very enthusiastic kindy and year 1 students gathered to perform together.

There wasn’t a dry eye in the house as they sang and danced to a very heart-warming song about the preciousness of a mother.

Every mother received a small gift to take away with her.

Following the performance families were invited to visit classrooms with their children.

Students proudly shared their book work and explained the different learning spaces in their classroom.
