CELEBRATIONS have returned to a school for the first time since COVID.

Rudheath Primary Academy and Nursery welcomed over 150 parents and carers as it hosted a celebration of International Women’s Day and Mother’s Day.

The school has traditionally always celebrated Mother’s Day by inviting relatives and carers for an afternoon with their children but was unable to do so in recent years due to the pandemic.

So, this year’s event was a welcome return to normality with families enjoying a cream tea and a variety of craft-based activities such as making bouquets of paper flowers, weaving hearts and designing bookmarks.

Andrew Ross, Principal at Rudheath Primary Academy and Nursery, said: “The pupils loved welcoming their families and special adults into school.

“Class discussions were a key part of the day with conversations around the importance of women in children’s everyday lives as our mothers or female-mother figures. 

“It was wonderful to hear the children talk about how proud they are and how special it is to have the love and support of their parent or carer; we are excited to carry on the tradition in years to come!”
