Mother's Day Breakfast
Week 1 of Term 2 began on an exciting note with 170 students, mothers, grandmothers and special friends gathering at Damien on Fisher for a delicious coffee and breakfast to celebrate Mother’s Day.
Our guests speaker, Coralie Cheney, a past parent and Old Concordian, shared her journey and challenges as she juggled motherhood and her successful career in radio and television, philanthropy, and senior management roles in functions and events. She also touched on her more recent election as Member for the Gault Ward at the City of Mitcham and her proud role as ‘Gamma’ to her first grandchild who is nearly four.
Guests also enjoyed an insightful message from our Head of College, Paul Weinert, and a wonderful performance by the Concordia Vocal Trio Dulcet Harmony. Jas Mooney, our School Captain, also delivered a lovely message acknowledging the incredible role and influence mothers have in the lives of their children.
We thank all who attended our largest Mother's Day Breakfast yet, helping to make it a wonderful College-wide celebration of the love, care, wisdom, beauty and strength of the mothers, grandmothers and special friends in our community.
Mother's Day Market Stall
On Friday afternoon, our Primary school students were able to purchase their Mother’s Day gifts at our annual Market Stall. From bed socks to bath bombs, candles and cosmetic bags, it was an exciting opportunity for students to experience the joy of giving, whilst also raising funds to support the Concordia P&F and their initiatives throughout the year.
Our heartfelt thanks go to Stephanie Gasking for coordinating the event and to the volunteers who joined her on the day.
