Our annual Prep-Year 6 Mothers’ Day Breakfast this morning was, as always, a lovely morning. To have more than 250 boys, siblings and special female guests gather together for such a special event was very emotional.
A most committed and generous group of parents, including Kate Jones, Katy Brumley, Lorraine Allender, Haidee Wallace, Lee Elliott-Bruce and Claire Jensen prepared and provided a lovely breakfast of home-made cereal and yoghurt, pastries, sausages and other treats.
Our Year 3-6 choir performed a moving rendition of “Have I Told You Lately…” and a rousing version of “Don’t Stop Me Now”. Our Breakfast finished with our traditional video of boys’ comments about their mums, and a photo presentation.
Our sincerest thanks to the many mums and guests who were able to join us to make the morning special, to our staff and especially to Deb for her organisation of the event.
At the Breakfast, we were delighted to hear from Southwood Old Boy Kieran Walsh. Kieran is one of six medical students who form Team Tonga. In June they are travelling to Tonga, as the Island nation lacks many basic medical supplies, sometimes even as basic as hand sanitiser. The team are raising funds to purchase medical equipment to assist in community screening as well as restocking basic medical supplies to aid the developing healthcare system in Tonga. We were delighted to be able to collect donations at our Breakfast to support Kieran and Team Tonga.
