On Friday 12th May St Columba’s celebrated Mother’s Day with a liturgy for the mothers and grandmothers of our school community. The children, led by our Year 6 leaders, organised a beautiful assembly to celebrate Mother’s Day and it was wonderful to see so many able to join us in the school hall for this occasion.
We are most grateful to the wonderful team who helped organise the Mother’s Day breakfast and to the Prep mothers who helped with the Mother’s day stall. One of our school families catered for the event which made it even more meaningful. They say, “It takes a village to raise a child”.
A gourmet breakfast began at 8am and our hall was alive with warmth, laughter and the catching up of friends.
Some comments from those who were at the breakfast:
‘I love the Dads participating and that it is multi-generational’
‘It brings community together’
‘Warming and heartening and highlights family’
‘Great that teachers are a part of the breakfast – it is inclusive’
‘An opportunity for children to show appreciation for their mums in this busy world we live in. It is important to just take some time out to stop and remind ourselves about how lucky we all are’
‘Makes us feel like we are part of a community’
After our liturgy one of our Dads commented that he found it moving, emotional and an honest connection between the children and their mothers.
Our Mother’s Day breakfast and liturgy has grown each year with so many parents taking the opportunity to come along and be a part of our little school with the big heart.
