On the Friday before Mother’s Day, Bourke High School female students and staff, relatives and members of the Bourke community gathered at the high school multi-purpose centre for afternoon tea, and to celebrate sisterhood and Mother’s Day.

The centre was filled with about 140 ladies of all ages and chatter filled the air over a variety of activities, including trivia, bingo, an instant talent quest and a fashion design and modelling challenge.

The production of the “When I am an old woman, I shall wear purple” fashion outfit showcased effective teamwork, initiative, creativity, and time management. The modelling of team creations boosts self-confidence and brings endless smiles. Rasheda Smith-Orcher won the fashion parade event. She looked stunning and her modelling was extremely theatrical, a compilation of slow and steady steps with bursts of youthful vitality.

The instant talent quest, showcased skills such as dancing, whistling, hand clapping and acrobatics. All contestants should be extremely proud of their spontaneous performances. The Bourke Public School Trio won the talent quest with their super dancing.

The Trivia competition was once again hotly contested, first place went to “TACO”, Second place to “Lizzie’s Mob” and third place went to “Team Awesome”.
