Mums, Kit Philp, Jane Miles and Katrina Brennan, had a great time being looked after by the Year 6 students at All Saints' School, Boonah
OUR community of schools got a head start on celebrating Mother's Day, with students inviting their mothers, grandmothers and others to enjoy some quality food and time together.
The international date honours mothers or mother figures, including stepmothers, guardians, foster mothers, relatives, and close family friends and their influence in society.
Students and staff organised breakfasts, brunches, lunches or afternoon teas to honour and pamper their special guests.
At All Saints' Primary School, Boonah, these special guests were invited along to an afternoon tea to celebrate Mother's Day.
Year 6 students were responsible for setting up the venue and meeting, greeting and serving the special guests, before cleaning up and packing everything away.
A delicious range of tasty treats was provided by the school, much of which was made by school staff members.
Mum Lee Cameron said she thought it was a wonderful afternoon tea.
“The food and the service were both excellent.
“The children did a marvellous job."
Teacher Kaye Vague said the mothers and grandmothers of the All Saints' school community enjoyed each other's company and appreciated the opportunity to sit back and be waited on.
“It was a lovely way to honour our school mums and grandmothers, with our fantastic Year 6 students serving the guests," she said.
