Two Wells kids celebrate their mums

TWO Wells Primary School students celebrated all the important women in their lives by purchasing special presents at the school’s annual Mother’s Day Stall on Friday.

To celebrate Mother’s Day, students brought along money to purchase gifts from a special stall that they could then give to their mums on Sunday.

Volunteers from the Two Wells Primary School Parents and Friends Association ran the event and spent Friday acting as shopkeepers as they helped the students with their selections.

Parents and Friends Association volunteer Susan Royals said the Mother’s Day Stall continues to grow each year, and the kids are always enthused to spend their money on gifts.

“The kids just love it,” she said.

“Some of the students come in with a list of people and they end up buying things for their mums, aunties or grandmothers.

“The kids are coming in and buying more and more things and the stall is just getting better and better each year.”

Ms Royals said, while some of the older students don’t require much help, the younger students need to be pointed in the right direction.

“The reception students struggle a little bit with making a decision, but we try to get them to think about what mum, or whoever they are buying for, would like, not just what they want,” she said.

“Sometimes, we do wonder how many of the jelly beans actually do get home, though!”

All money raised on the day is put back into the school community.
