Celebrating with scones and kisses

WHEN she wraps her arms around you, it's as if the whole world melts away.

She will give you her love, her soul and in a heartbeat would give her life.

She's the one we call Mum, and there's nobody else like her.

So this Mother's Day, it's time to show her just how much she really means to you.

Yesterday, Assumption College students did exactly that.

With their mothers, grandmothers and carers by their sides, students attended a beautiful Mass at St Mary's Church followed by a morning tea at the school.

Principal's assistant Cheryl Collins said this year's celebration was the biggest yet.

"This is the most response we've had, which is good to see," Mrs Collins said.

She said it was an important part of the school year and was special for students and parents.

"It's a time to give back to those who care for us."

School leader Tessa O'Brien said she enjoyed the morning celebrations.

"It's very nice to see them all together like this and it gives them the opportunity to thank them," Tessa said.

Her mum, Clare, said she was happy to be a part of the Mother's Day morning tea but was sad it would be her last.

"Well this is Tessa's last year so this will be the last one," Mrs O'Brien said.

"It's lovely to be involved and I do feel very special."
