Muddy Buddy

Sunday the 17th of march tens of students break free from their comfort zones and enter the muddiest competition of 2013, for some their was blood, sweat and even tears. For weeks the worthy competition have prepared to face hundreds. Located in Mapua.
It's Muddy Buddy.

For years The teachers of NIS have organised a team for Muddy Buddy called "Blue Steel". Recently Blue Steel turned up at the competition with the largest group, topping all the other schools, friends and family's with a surge of blue. The course had all sorts of obstacles like nets, hay bundles, muddy ditches, streams and just muddy areas to run through.

We interviewed some students from room 16 about what they thought of the muddy buddy.
Some says it was fun and he might do it next year it was worth the ten dollar fee.
Others thought it was great and they just had fun. Overall our school did really well running two of the three laps.

The reason we had great success is because of our outstanding team work we stayed with our partner and helped each other out. We played fair and things went really well. We went there and we had a good time and got along with the competition.

The 3 A's are in us all. Athleticism, attitude and awesomeness.
Inside we are all Blue Steelians we will try and try at the muddy buddy and hopefully we will still have many students competing in Mapua for many years to come.
