A colour­ful cause

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - NEWS -

ALL the colours of the rain­bow were rep­re­sented when stu­dents at St Columba’s Catholic Pri­mary School got bright for a good cause.

The stu­dents took part in a colour run on Oc­to­ber 26 to raise money for a new pi­ano for the school’s mu­sic pro­gram.

Par­ents and Friends Com­mit­tee par­ent rep­re­sen­ta­tive and event co-or­di­na­tor Jac­inta Rim­ing­ton said the idea was to get stu­dents in­volved in a unique ac­tiv­ity.

“It was very colour­ful, there was plenty of colour and bub­bles, and we even in­cluded five ac­tiv­ity sta­tions for the stu­dents to try out,” she said. “The day went fan­tas­tic, it was the first time we’ve run a colour run event.

“I think the teach­ers en­joyed it just as much as the stu­dents.

“The stu­dents all dressed in white with some colour­ful pants.

“We’ve held walkathons in the past but we wanted to do some­thing dif­fer­ent to help raise money for the pi­ano.”

Mrs Rim­ing­ton said the school’s mu­sic pro­gram had per­formed very well and the com­mit­tee was look­ing to sup­port it.

“We are hop­ing to d461252 raise $10,000 and we’ve raised $5700 so far,” she said. “We had sup­port from Sok­lich and Co, who spon­sored the event.”
