A tribute to three mothers
For the past few years since Nagambie Primary School office manager for more than 30 years Fran Irwin passed away with ovarian cancer, Nagambie school has held a morning tea in her honour and as a tribute to mothers everywhere, especially those associated with the school.
Mrs Irwin’s husband Keith has been a great supporter of the morning and was thrilled that students, staff, Parents and Friends group (PNF) and mothers and grandmothers and visitors supported the fundraiser for ovarian and breast cancer on Thursday, May 11.
Guests sat around in the glorious autumn sunshine or under the trees and enjoyed a luscious morning tea served by the Year 6 school captains who played host along with the mothers of the PNF group.
Some seniors from Lakeview Lodge hostel joined in the morning tea and social event.
At recess time other pupils joined the visitors and watched the lucky raffle winners take home some generously donated prizes.
School principal Rob French thanked all mothers and grandmothers who supported the school and the families, PNF and staff for their ongoing assistance to Nagambie Primary School. More than $300 was raised for the cancer fundraiser.
