Pauline led our service for Mothering Sunday with help from reader including Lynda and Ruby. We had a history lesson of how Julia Ward Howe began the fight for Mothers Day taken through to its successful adoption by Anna Jarvis. Find out more here. We were reminded of mothers in history such as a WW2 Polish lady Irena Sendler, who helped over 2500 Jewish children to escape and of course the Virgin Mary. Thoughts for all Mothers, Grandmothers and those unable to have children were close in our minds. All Mums were then presented with a primula flower in a pot and we retired to a lovely cake and tea in the schoolroom.
