Excerpt from our School Bulletin 9th May 2019
Mother’s Day Stall
There was much excitement yesterday as the children made their selections from the lovely range of gifts available. A very big thankyou to all our wonderful volunteers who helped all our children make their special purchases for their mums for Mother’s Day this Sunday. Your efforts in assisting the children with their purchases are much appreciated. Special thanks to Kym M., Gordana M., and Jan S. for being so generous with your time and helping make today so special for the children. Extra special thanks to Kym and Gordana for once again coordinating all the beautiful gifts and organising this special event for us.
I hope all mums enjoy their day on Sunday. Although this day in recent times has become very commercialised (who shares with me my distaste for ads spruiking gifts worth hundreds of dollars for Mother’s Day?), it can nonetheless be a lovely way to pause, reflect and join with our families to celebrate mothers, grandmothers, and great grandmothers, by just being together. Our thoughts go out to those who have lost their mums since last year. May your happy memories sustain you. In honour of all mothers out there, I am attaching a lovely article from our parenting expert Michael Grose.
House Cross Country
Congratulations to all our students in Years 3-6 who participated so enthusiastically in our House Cross Country event last Monday. Thank you too, to our wonderful parents and teachers who supported all of our kids. Thank you to Nami’s mum Lisa, for the lovely feedback…’it was a great day and the kids supported each other so nicely. It makes me feel blessed, thankful and proud’ - I couldn’t agree more.
