A beautiful garden luncheon was held last Friday for our boarder mums to gather at the school where their girls have made a home. Mrs Gaylene Stanford hosted the luncheon with the assistance of her Boarder Parent Support Group.
Mums were welcomed by melodies performed by the talented Performing Arts girls. Bec's Catering Innovation treated them to a delectable array of canapes, served graciously by three of our own hospitality students. The mums and their girls enjoyed some heartfelt words from our Head of Boarding, Mrs Donna Grant. Donna and her staff kindly invited all the girls to give their mum a special hand wrapped rose. Boarder Captain, Erin Geddes, responded to Donna's address with a moving tribute to boarder mums and boarding staff at Glennie.
The mums really treasured this special opportunity to spend some time with their girls and boarding staff, that unlike many others, don't get to see them for most of the school term. Thank you to Mr and Mrs Cohen who kindly opened up their home for us to hold this event. Many thanks also to all the staff who contributed in some way to making this day one to remember.
