St Anthony’s School for Girls held a special Mother’s Day breakfast to celebrate their loved ones and to raise money for their two chosen charities.
On Friday, mums, and some dads, visited the school to share a wonderful breakfast with their daughters. The families were treated to a choice of cooked eggs, pastries and fruit prepared by the school’s chef.
The meal was in aid of the Magic Breakfast Charity which works to ensure no child in the UK is too hungry to learn by providing healthy breakfasts and support to schools. The girls also sold canvas tote bags which they hand decorated to raise money for their second charity, Voluntary Service Overseas (VSO) the Sisters for Sisters’ Education Project in Nepal.
This project provides specialist volunteer support and training in schools and at government level to make education more inclusive for girls.
VSO provide direct coaching and support for girls from peer mentor ‘big sisters’ in order to keep vulnerable girls in school to receive the consistent, quality education they deserve.

The charities were chosen by the girls during a school council meeting and so far, £150 has been raised for the Magic Breakfast Charity and £190 for VSO through the sale of the tote bags.
The pupils have also made kindness boxes which will help raise more money for their worthy charities. Families will contribute to the boxes each time a child carries out an act of kindness at home.

Head teacher Laura Martin said: “The breakfast was a lot of fun for both the pupils and their parents. It was a wonderful way for the girls to celebrate their mums for Mother’s Day and to raise money for these great charities.
“The kindness boxes will help the children learn the importance of supporting charity and those in need. It will show them that we can affect change for the better through our actions.”
