Muddy end to term for hardworking kids
Wickham Primary School students saw off Term 1 last Friday with a day of wild and colourful hairstyles and no-holds-barred mudslinging — the good kind.
After 10 weeks of good behaviour and hard work in the classroom, students and staff let loose and celebrated on the last day of term with a combined mud rush and crazy hair day.
Children covered themselves in mud running through five different stations set up around the school, including obstacle courses through mud, a slippery mud slide, a mud gauntlet and a tug of war in mud.
However, they went home clean at the end of the day thanks to a hose down by the Wickham Fire and Rescue Service volunteers.
The muddy event was part of the school’s attendance rewards day program, where staff hold a different novelty activity at the end of each term as a reward for good behaviour.
A Wickham Primary spokeswoman said students, staff and the many parent volunteers had a great time and the school had received a lot of positive feedback from the community.

Wickham Primary students have fun getting dirty.
