Kids celebrate mums
School kids’ pampering afternoon
MUMS around the Whitsundays were in for a treat at the Whitsunday Christian College on Friday as classes held a special afternoon before Mother’s Day.
Children from Prep to Year 6 put on a bunch of activities and special things for their mums, including hand massages, nail painting, colouring in games, shoe shining, reading and an afternoon tea.
More than 100 mums attended the school to enjoy the afternoon of planned pampering.
Whitsunday Christian College head of primary Melissa Wales said they had been holding the afternoon for the past four or five years, with more than half of the school’s mums attending the day.
“Our Mother’s Day afternoon is open to all the junior classes,” she said.
“Most of them made little gifts that they are going to present their mums as well.
“Either things like cards or things like little craft items as well that they’ve made.
“Most of the mums come, or grandmas or an auntie,” she said. “Or some sort of significant female in the child’s life can come if mum can’t make it.”
