On Mothers Day a group of eager Emanuel students, their mums, grandmothers and fathers stepped out in their Emanuel Striders t-shirts to walk or run the Mothers Day Classic. Every year our team gets larger and the fun factor increases in proportion. The children run ahead, then turn back to their mums, only to sprint ahead again. The older kids pretend to be a touch bored, but the smiles soon appear as the atmosphere of the day does its magic spell.
An Emanuel parent had a wonderful and meaningful day out. “I had a lovely walk with my daughters and could not think of a better way to have spent my Mothers Day morning than by honouring my mother who is a breast cancer survivor of nine years. Thank you for making us feel a part of the Emanuel School family.”
Thanks to all those who sponsored our team. We raised over $700, which will help the National Breast Cancer Foundation to continue their invaluable work.
