Mothers, grandmothers and other female mentors of junior year students will attend a special liturgy in the college chapel on May 10, followed by a morning tea.

Junior Years assistant director Elias Degeorge said the celebration would be a chance for the boys “to say what we so often mean to say, but so rarely do”.

“This event is an opportunity to give recognition and thanks for the things that mothers and significant female figures do for the boys every day,” he said.

Students will also be able to find a small, inexpensive gift at the Mother’s Day stalls which will be set up on campus.

“Any opportunity we get to bring families in the community in for an event we like to do, especially for our school mums,” Mr Degeorge added.

Mum Amy Brasher who has 14-year-old triplets Felix, Charlie and Henry and 16-year-old Harry at the college, said running around after four teenage boys as well as 10-year-old daughter Matilda was “hard, but rewarding work”. She said she was looking forward to some “time-out” and “pampering” on Mother’s Day.

As Felix noted: “Mother’s Day is a chance to treat mum with respect and give back the love that she gives us.”

Mothers and mums-to-be were also in the spotlight at the annual Pregnancy, Babies and Children’s Expo held at the Adelaide Showground last month.

For the first time Catholic Education SA hosted a stand at the expo which gave representatives the chance to have many positive interactions with families considering schooling options.

Attendees who registered at the stand will receive follow-up information about CESA’s early years services and schools.
