On Friday 7 May we held our Mothers’ Day Lunch at Adelaide Oval. Around 300 mums attended with the tickets selling out in record time!

9 May 2021

It was wonderful to see so many areas of the women in the Pembroke community represented. The breadth of this representation shows the strength of our community and how much we look forward to getting together at this lunch each year.

We were joined by our principal Luke Thomson and his wife Stephanie with the hosting duties conducted by the amazing Amity Dry. We were treated to an entertaining fashion parade styled by Nicola Lynch with fashion by Tusmore Trader and Two Pairs modelled by our sensational mums.

While the main goal of the lunch is to provide a fun social event, we are very pleased to advise that through your amazing generosity with our live auction and raffle we were able to raise just over $8500 towards the Yellow Submarine Too Café.
