Wallbrook Primary Academy Celebrates Mother’s Day and International Women’s Day

Wallbrook Primary Academy brought pupils, their mothers and loved ones together for a charming breakfast event in celebration of Mother’s Day, creating a morning filled with love, appreciation and many special memories.

Throughout the morning, pupils expressed their gratitude for the love and tireless efforts given by their mothers, grandmothers, aunts, guardians or any other significant role model in their lives.

Lorna McGregor, Principal at Wallbrook Primary Academy, said: “It was wonderful to witness the genuine affection and appreciation shared between our pupils and their loved ones.

“As a school, we are committed to providing a high-quality, inclusive education for all our pupils and promote positive relationships and the impact this has on wellbeing within our community. Encouraging, recognising and openly expressing feelings, including understanding and responding to the feelings of others, is an important skill to acknowledge and celebrate with pupils.”

The event was brimming with many joyous moments, laughter and heartfelt conversations. This special occasion not only brought smiles to many faces but also deepened appreciation and recognition of the incredible role that women play in shaping the lives of their children and families. It served as a beautiful reminder of the love and care that enriches our lives every day.

In celebration of International Women’s Day, our school community also came together to celebrate the invaluable contributions of women. We were delighted to collaborate with the Girls’ Football Association, where Wallbrook took part in the largest-ever football session exclusively for girls. During break and lunch times, girls in primary schools nationwide participated in football sessions, championing teamwork, inclusivity and empowerment on a grand scale.
