School colours kids’ world
Geraldton Primary School’s latest fundraiser has raked in an estimated $7000.
The money will be used to buy new digital technology and playground equipment for students.
The fundraiser was a Colour Fun Run, in which students completed a series of activities and obstacles while being bombarded with coloured powder and hosed down by local firefighters.
“These events take us away from the classroom for a different type of learning and they value-add to the Geraldton community,” principal Jacqui Quartermaine said.
“They add to our relationships, to the fun factor and they help make memories for our students.”
Geraldton Primary School held its first Colour Run fundraiser last year.
The event is organised by the Parents and Citizens Association.
