Mother’s Day Competition Winners

Thank you very much to everyone who entered our Mother’s Day Competition.

Diversity & Challenge

Our intention for the competition was to recognise the good work mothers and grandmothers do to raise children.  However, it became so much more.  We were moved by many of the entries we received. It has certainly given us greater insight into the diversity of families in the school community and the challenges they face.

“I have two children… one is on the Autism Spectrum. Life is hard trying to get both dressed in the morning and get lunches sorted out also. Ordering lunch would be a great for everyone.” Mum.

“She is the kindest mum in the world and she just went through chemotherapy for her breast cancer that she had! She is just starting back at work which has been extremely stressful for her life!” Student.

“My sister & I live with Nan. She’s looked after us since I was 18 months old & my sister was a new born baby. There’s only Nan & us. Nan works full time & we think she deserves a break.” Student.

“I would like for my Nana to have a day off as her and Pa have been looking after me since my Mummy and Daddy were killed in a car accident.  I love Nana so much.” Student.

It made us reflect on the saying “it takes a village to raise a child”.  Rory’s School Lunches is proud to be a member of that village, even if we only play a small part in providing nutritious meals to feed children to give a mum or grandmother a day off.

Students Express Their Gratitude

We were also impressed by the students who expressed their gratitude to their mums and grandmothers for their hard work and sacrifices.

“This mum deserves a day off because she’s been a wonderful friend, cook, woman all 365 days a year. And for Mothers Day she needs a break she truly deserves, to let Rory’s healthy lunch take over.”  Student.

“Everything she does is for her children and her day starts at 5:00 and doesn’t finish until 10pm every night. Cooks and cleans endlessly for a house of 6. Would love a day off for a sleep and relax.” Student.

“My mum does everything for me without complaint. She is always there when I need her. She makes me laugh when I am sad and she gives me the best hugs.” Student

“My mum gets up every day of the year and makes me, my brother and sister every meal we eat. Breakfast, lunches, dinners, home made snacks and even sweets. Sometimes she doesn’t even eat herself.” Student

There were so many worthy competition entries and we would love to give a voucher to everyone who entered.
