This year the Bold Park Community has come together to achieve something remarkable. The group travelling to Nepal will not only celebrate International Mud Day with our friends.They will also complete a renovation project at the orphanage and take with them a donated trampoline, soccer jumpers and wheel chairs from the Rotary Club of Scarborough Wheel Chairs for Kids project. Thank you so much for supporting this project. It is important in our philosophy that our students and families see themselves as a part of a global community, connected and respectful in every way.
At Bold Park we are busy constructing mud slides for our Mud Day celebrations. Our children will not be able to jump off the back of an elephant but they will be able to slide down into a mud pond, make mud bricks and enjoy marshmallows around the campfire.
Our Mud Day will be on Friday the 28th of June from 12pm. More details will be distributed by your class teachers next week. You are of course invited to join the fun.
I like the romantic image of children all over the world playing in mud at around the same time. somehow connected through Mother Earth, connected through childhood, nature and passion for adventure. We need more Mud Days in our lives.
