Mothers' Day Assembly

Mrs Roche inspired the boys to think about mothers and the influence of women in their lives in order to prepare for the Junior School Mothers' Day Assembly. The boys posed lovingly for a photo and created a black and white image with pop colours. These designs were used to make cards and also to form the design for the class Mothers' Day Assembly.

Miss Cirillo and Mrs Roche asked the boys to survey their mothers to find out what 'motherhood' means. The range of responses not only delighted the boys but truly made them think about what it takes to be a mum- the love, the dedication and selflessness.

5C mums:

…motherhood means love, caring and putting someone else's needs before your own.

...unconditional love... Motherhood is the ultimate juggling act which I wouldn't trade for anything. It is the most important, rewarding, loving job but at the same time, it's exhausting, hard work!

…having a child is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body.

Elizabeth Stone

Mrs Roche:

Motherhood the selfless journey with surprising and joyful twists and turns at every corner. No map provided

Miss Cirillo…

…my next journey and adventure.

Our assembly followed the theme of 'motherhood.' The boys shared their mother's statements and also recited a poem about motherhood. The boys presented cards with their own statements written to their mothers along with single chrysanthemums.

5C boys:

A mother means having someone who would do anything in the world for me.

Thomas Lambo

Motherhood means endless support.

Liam Locke

Motherhood means the ultimate challenge in life that has no breaks and it is the most valuable job ever.

Ethan Kerr

5C hope all of our wonderful mothers and women in our lives had a special day on Sunday and that they felt appreciated and loved (as they should each and every day).
