The college was a flurry of activity on Thursday May 11 with around 120 guests attending our annual Mother’s Day morning tea. Conversation flowed and laughter filled the air as our mums and grandmothers shared stories over barista made hot beverages and a sea of grazing delights.
On arrival, guests were greeted by Middle School Vice Captains Emily and Inari, once seated, Principal Mrs Jacqui Layfield welcomed guests and shared stories about her own motherhood journey and three daughters.
Year 9 students Ashleigh, Chelsea, Clemmie, Eliza, Elle, Isabelle, Jade and Zara, who are studying elective subject Innovating for a Creative Future provided service excellence, taking orders, delivering hot drinks, conversing with guests and working alongside our baristas. Their professionalism and enthusiasm was amazing, and it was noticed by guests many of whom made a beeline for staff to express their gratitude. This elective provides students with the opportunity to study business, entrepreneurship and gain barista skills.
At recess, plenty of students gathered in the atrium to say hello and grab a photo with mum or nan.
The morning was a wonderful way to mark Mother’s Day and show thanks to the many special people in our community.
