Luncheon for new mothers enjoyed by all

Sunday 9 March, 2014

A warm autumn day saw about 170 mothers from Year 7 and new students gather in the Boarders’ Dining Hall for a sit down lunch on Friday 7 March.

Historically an event open to all Year 7 mothers and new families across the Secondary School, this year the event was also open to new mothers from Preparatory and Junior School. This proved to be a resounding success with a large number of Year 5 and Kindergarten mothers attending as well as families from across all years.

Hosted by College Principal Vicki Waters, it was an opportunity for everyone to make a connection not only with the school, but with mothers in their daughter’s Pastoral Care groups, Heads of Departments and Middle School Student Coordinators in a friendly, informal atmosphere. The President of the Pymble Parent Association Mrs Kylie MacDonald was there to meet and greet at the door and dine with mothers from her daughters’ year groups.

After an impressive lunch, the afternoon concluded with a cup of tea and final chat before school pick up. Year 7 tables had butterfly decorations at their tables and name badges had a small butterfly printed on them. Butterflies are the Head of Middle School, Ms Lindsay Bosch’s symbol for her Year 7s this year.
