Our school uniform has been put through its paces!
Last week we put our school uniform through its paces, testing strength, durability and quality on one of the UK’s difficult army assault courses:
Our skirts, jumpers, shirts, trousers, shoes and blazers were put through rigorous combat training including racing over cargo nets, charging through muddy tunnels, crawling under replica barbed-wire, plus the biggest obstacle of the day, a tough rope swing into a giant water pool.
Our Teflon coated skirts and trousers were nominated the day’s overall winners staying completely dry throughout the course with the water being visibly repelled and earning the name “magic trousers and magic skirts” from the kids themselves.
Wayne Monkman, assault course manager at Henfold Lakes said: “The uniforms were tested to their limit, on a tough course similar to what we use for military training. We were really impressed with their durability – no rips or holes. These uniforms will certainly stand the test of time in the playground.”
And last week we gave two lucky children the chance to take part in this George outdoor adventure photo shoot – Alfie, 7, and Evie, 8, won the competition and you can see them starring in the video!
Alfie said his favourite piece of uniform was his shoes as they were “very comfortable” and Evie liked the way her uniform “dries off very quickly”.
