Muddy end to term for hard­work­ing kids

Pilbara News - - News - Ali­cia Per­era

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.
