Happy Mother’s Day

Michelle Auld October 20th

On Friday 6th May 2016, St Joseph’s School held a Mother’s Day Morning Tea. All Mother’s and Grandmothers were invited to attend and we had a great turn out. Thank you all for coming and joining us on this special occasion. The students certainly love it when their family comes along to school.

On the morning, the students entertained their families with a Mother’s Day song and the senior class read a lovely Mother’s Day poem. Well done to the students. The students also gave their Mums and Grandmother’s flowers which they had made in class.

Thank you to our staff for providing the food and looking after our visitors. A yummy morning tea was enjoyed by all.

We also had some Mother’s Day prizes drawn out. The winners are listed below:

Congratulations ladies. We hope you enjoy your gifts.

Cut fruit into manageable portions for your child.
