Kids cel­e­brate mums

School kids’ pam­per­ing af­ter­noon

Whitsunday Times - - KIDS’ ZONE -

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.”
