Year 8, 9 and 10 Spanish students honour their Mums.


We hope they made it home!

Mothers are loved and appreciated but no more so than in the Spanish-speaking world. From the singing of “Las Mañanitas” (a traditional song) to the lengthy family ‘comida’ (lunch), the day is completely dedicated to celebrating and thanking Mothers.

The Year 8, 9 and 10 Spanish classes set aside a bit of time to write out their own cards in Spanish for ‘El Día de las Madres’ and enthusiastically produced messages of ‘gratitud’ y ‘cariño’. Hopefully, ‘el chocolate’ also made it home!
