There was a wonderful turn out to last weekend’s Mothers and Sons ‘Time and Space’ event as close to 200 attendees gathered to discuss times of transition in our boys’ lives.

Hosted by The Wynne Centre for Boys’ Health and Wellbeing and the Centre for Ethics, the event was facilitated by Bill Jennings, creator and founder of ‘Time & Space.’ Bill led discussions on how times of transition can be major events in a boy’s life, bringing challenges, joys and a roller coaster of emotions for mothers and sons.

“This event offered a unique opportunity for mothers/female mentors and their sons in Year 7 to reflect on their important relationship. This combined with the opportunity for carefully guided interactions with other mums and their boys was invaluable and will spark further discussion moving forward. We feel this is a significant benefit to the Christ Church community,” says Liam Casson, Director of The Wynne Centre for Boys’ Health and Wellbeing.

The event concluded with a magical moment for mothers and sons, as they shared treasures they had brought including teddies, baby books and childhood drawings. This spurred some tears, conversation and a lot of laughter, making it a special time for all who participated.
