Mother’s Day and Family

Mr Andrew Hawkins – Head of Senior School

With Mother’s Day this Sunday, this week’s Assembly will have a Mother’s Day and family theme. Our mums on staff at the Senior School will be VIP guests at the Assembly and we will be celebrating how important women are in our lives.

Being a parent is often thankless and challenging, but amazingly rewarding at the same time. I hope all of the special women in our boys lives get a chance to connect with their sons and grandsons this weekend. One mother on Sunday who should be extremely proud is AJ Kanemura. Below is an excerpt from an email Surman Housemaster Mrs Kerrie Dickson received this week regarding Year 9 student Kye Kanemura and his sister Pia. Some pictures below help to tell their beautiful story.

Kye had an amazing day with Pia racing in the sprint distance triathlon (750m swim/20km bike/5km run) with a personal best time of 1:23.48 today. Not only they won the para tri category and received gold medals, they were also awarded Triathlon Queensland President’s Award at the Champions of Queensland Awards.

The full report on their Facebook page:

They had a great support from everyone and loved every moment of it.
