Mother’s Day 2019

It was a cold and wet morning but the young faces, bursting with excitement, about to share a yummy breakfast at school, warmed the hearts of the St James mothers and overcame the chill.

The students and their mothers were treated to croissants, muffins and barista-made coffee on Friday morning. The children were spoilt alongside their mums with a hot chocolate. It was a lovely time to have a cuppa and a chat and look forward to the prospects of the special day on Sunday.

After breakfast, we celebrated a Mass for all of our Mothers in our lives. Sometimes we need to remember the ‘Mother figures’ in our midst, even if our mums are no longer in our lives. The children sang beautifully, in genuine thanks for the special people that gave them life; love and sustain them; guide and teach them.
