Mud Day 2018

Last Friday, 29th June, Victor Harbor R-7 School celebrated International Mud Day. International Mud Day began in 2009 at a World Forum Event where Gillian McAuliffe from Australia and Bishnu Bhatta from Nepal came up with the concept as a way to encourage feelings of community and appreciation for the world around us. Mud is quintessential to the outdoors, and the outdoors mean fresh air and exercise, two of the best things for us. 

We  took  part  of  the  annual event  by creating  our very own mud slide, mud obstacle course and a mud kitchen! There were plenty of smiles and laughs throughout the afternoon. 

Thank you to all the parents and caregivers who supported this event. We hope it was an afternoon the students will remember and has encouraged them to get outside and appreciate the wonderful community we live in.
