Sewing old school Uniform measure: Kylie Georges, left, and Barbara Moore with a handful of the special bears. Photo: ROSEMARY McLENNAN By ROSEMARY McLENNAN Every person registered for the weekend s St Brendan s jubilee received a special teddy bear dressed in school uniform. Staff and jubilee committee members Kylie Georges and Barbara Moore did most of the sewing, assisted in the early stages by other committee members. It was the idea of parent and jubilee committee member Sarah Bosworth who works at WelTec where they give a teddy to each graduate. At St Brendan s they bought 300 Teddy Time bears which came with a white T-shirt with the school logo. The group of women had to find and cut up old uniforms to make clothes for the bears. Men who registered received a bear with shorts while women who were pupils in the 1980s and earlier received a bear with a skirt from the winter uniform. Younger women received a bear with the summer uniform introduced in the 1990s. Miss Georges and Mrs Moore think they have spent 60 hours between them on the bulk of the project. Surplus bears were presold for $15. It has been fun, says Mrs Moore but they were still sewing the day before the jubilee began. Each bear was wrapped in a cellophane bag and labelled, to be given to the recipient at the end of the Friday or Saturday evening functions. FROM Page 3 Parish devotion thrives The building was ahead of its time by being wider than it was long. Until the church was finished, parishioners celebrated mass in an old army shed in Palmer Cres. It was converted to classrooms and St Brendan s opened in 1961. New school buildings were built in the 1970s and 1980s. Lay groups in the parish minis- ter to the spiritual and physical needs of people, especially through the St Vincent de Paul Society, which distributes food, clothing and household furniture. The parish has a vibrant music group which is involved in the 10am mass. Our Lady of Grace is a thriving parish, due to the devotion and participation of faithful parish- ioners and is in good heart as it goes forward to its diamond jubi- lee, says Jan Williams who, with Paul Blumskey, is updating the parish history from 10 years ago. The new book will include jubi- lee photos and be printed before Christmas. It will be available through the parish office.
