It was a happier Mother’s Day celebration at St Ignatius Catholic School on Friday.

Before the weekend telecommunications debacle, St Ignatius Parish School hosted a morning tea for all the mums, nans, aunties, and caregivers to say thank you for the support they gave the children at home, in the classroom, and beyond.

St Ignatius Principal Una Taylor said it was a very special occasion for the school, the children and the mums and nans who attended.

“It was such a beautiful ceremony, with the sun shining as it only can in Bourke and the children very excited about the Mother’s Day morning tea,” Una said.

“We began the day with a liturgy and then hosted a brunch down in the shed - it was beautiful.

“We had between 45 and 50 parents and nans, carers and siblings, and the children sang songs and read poems they had written about why they loved their mum.

“We then enjoyed a morning tea together with scones and sandwiches and cups of tea.

“It was a real success; at St Ignatius we are always looking for a different ways to invite parents into the school, to honour the value they bring to their children’s lives.

“Mother’s Day is particularly special, because without mums we wouldn’t have our children, so it was very important to show how thankful we are to have their support,” Mr Taylor said.
