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.
