Mother’s Day is a special time in the year when a mother gets a little extra attention as their child show just how much their mother mean to them. And as a mother, the thing I enjoy the most in the world is spending time with my children doing something that excites them. Thirty three mothers (and one lucky grandmother) joined us at the Waverley Montessori to do exactly that during our Mother’s Day morning and afternoon tea.
On entering the classroom, children presented their mothers with a bright chrysanthemum flower. This flower, which is in season in May, is often given to mothers on mother’s day and can be worn by men to honour their mother. The children had also worked throughout the week to create an embroidered heart which they gave to their mothers as a present for mother’s day and a reminder of the fun day.
Mothers joined their children for a morning or afternoon tea where party pies, sausage rolls and fairy bread (made by the children themselves) were served. Afterwards, some excited children also showed their mum around their the classroom and demonstrated their favourite montessori activities.
I hope all the mothers (and grandmother) enjoyed their special day, and we already can’t wait to put on another great day for the fathers in September!
