A school has reinstated its Mother’s Day stall after plans to cancel in the name of “diversity” were announced, The Australian reports.
Melbourne’s Moonee Ponds West Primary School sent out a newsletter announcing that a stall made for children to spend pocket money on small gifts for Mother’s Day would not be going ahead, to the dismay of parents.
Principal Jeff Lyon explained that the school would instead be celebrating UN International Day of Families. In a newsletter sent to families of pupils, he wrote: “I believe celebrating International Day of Families is a more inclusive way of celebrating the richness, diversity and complexity of living and loving as a family in the modern world.
