School colours kids’ world

Geraldton Guardian - - NEWS -

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.
