Roman (Year 2) and Allegra (Year 4) together with their sister Francesca (Year 6, SL), competed in the Mini Mudder last weekend. It was a 1-mile obstacle course mud run!
It was challenging, physical, dirty and required team work to get through all the obstacles. They all completed the course and helped everyone cross the line too!
