Walcha Central School hosts a morning tea for mums

Local mums went back to school last Thursday for the Walcha Central School 2019 Mothers' Day morning tea.

From 10 am the primary school department classrooms were opened to let the matriarchs of the family join in the fun.

Students also had the chance to read out their recipe for a great mum - essentially a list of the adjectives they thought best described their mother.

Afterwards, everyone descended on the staff room where a delicious collection of sweets and savouries was enjoyed and washed down with tea and coffee with the teachers.

According to Wikipedia: " Mother's Day is a celebration honoring the mother of the family, as well as motherhood, maternal bonds, and the influence of mothers in society. It is celebrated on various days in many parts of the world, most commonly in the months of March or May."
