JS Mother’s Day Breakfast 2023

By Mrs Jo O'Brien, Assistant Head of Junior School Learning and Teaching

On Friday, 12 May, we celebrated Mother’s Day as a Junior School community. The event, held at the Junior School undercroft, brought together students, teachers, and parents for a fun-filled morning of food, laughter, and celebration.

The highlight of the morning was the performances by our Songsters and Vox choirs, who entertained our community with their joyful singing and beautiful renditions of ‘Never Fully Dressed without a Smile’ and ‘When I Grow Up.’

Service-learning students assist with the Mother's Day breakfast.

College Principal, Mrs Fiona Godfrey, addressed the gathering and highlighted the importance of community connections. She encouraged our families to be involved in Radford College life in whatever capacity they can and emphasised how strong family-school partnerships help establish and maintain high expectations and contribute to positive attitudes about learning and student well-being.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who helped to make our Mother's Day Breakfast such a success. We are grateful for the dedication and thorough organisation of Mrs Tracey Markovic, Mrs Beth Maggs, Ms Kath Notley and Ms Cathy Jackson, as well as our hard-working Year 9 service-learning students, and the support of our other teachers and staff. Most importantly, we would like to thank all the wonderful mothers and mother figures who attended the event for their love, support, and inspiration.
