Tough Udder

We recently held our inaugural ‘Tough Udder’ competition for our Year 7 boarders at our new farm, Windermere.

Based on the endurance event, Tough Mudder, the students had to navigate a 5km course around the school farm about which the senior boarding students had stationed challenges reflective of life on the farm. These included shaving (a balloon), crawling through the dams, pregnancy testing a fake cow (complete with veterinarian gloves) and bandaging a snake bite amongst others. In addition, the students had to carry a bale of straw and an open jerry can, with any losses being measured at the end. They also had to pick up parts to build a catapult along the way.

 

All in all it was a great day with plenty of happy smiles and dirty bodies on the bus ride home.
