SOUTH Coogee Pri­mary School stu­dents will run 4km in the City to Surf this year on Sun­day, Au­gust 27.

The stu­dents will raise funds for a char­ity of their choice and as­so­ci­ate prin­ci­pal Ja­son Bushe-Jones said there were 15 par­tic­i­pants signed up al­ready.

Mr Bushe-Jones started the school’s first run­ners club this year.

“We prac­tise ev­ery Thurs­day with 40 to 50 kids do­ing a 1km to 5km Run­ners Club,” he said. “They are there at 7.30am rain, hail, or shine.

“We set a course around the school of about 1km, and par­ents and other staff come along and there is break­fast af­ter as well.”

The Golden Eggs Schools Pro­gram will pro­vide nu­tri­tional sup­port to the stu­dents in the lead-up to the big race.
