Yeehaa! School's out

ST MARY'S pupils welcomed the first day of summer with a wet and wild chain of activities.

Children from prep to Year 7 smothered themselves in mud, water, soap and unknown gooey green substances to celebrate the end of school.

The day included such activities as Zumba, indoor games and sponge bombs, just to name a few.

Year 1 teacher Catriona Lawson said the slip and slide was definitely an overall winner among all age groups.

"The slip and slide is a stand-out favourite; it always is," Ms Lawson said.

Ms Lawson said the day was a great way to merge both campuses and have a fun day.

"It's a split campus so it's very nice to have the whole school together and in such a fun way," she said.

Year 2 pupil Maddie Roche said she loved everything about the wet and wild day.

"It's fun and we get to do all different activities with our friends and build sandcastles," Maddie said.

Fellow peer Samantha Joyce said she couldn't wait for school holidays.

"I'm going to the beach and going to make sandcastles like today," she said.
