It’s a time to sit back and enjoy each other’s company. To make new friends and to say good-bye to old ones who’s sons are leaving the school at the end of grade 12. We laugh, we cry, we dance, we drink and we eat. It’s our time for relaxation as we leave the outside world, well outside. Its time to be women instead of wives, mothers and chauffeurs. It’s a time to enjoy a coffee and a chat without kids interrupting or husbands complaining. It’s a time to be… just YOU, without any responsibility. Mother’s Camp for 2018 will be held from Friday 2nd – Sunday 4th March. Tickets will go on sale early in the 1st Semester of 2018, so keep an eye out for the Early College Newsletter for further information. We invite and welcome all mothers. Hope to see you there.
Mother’s Camp is where the mothers of our fine young men are celebrated, friendships formed and information learned.
