Local kids get active in fun run
St Catherine’s celebrate education with health awareness
ST CATHERINE’S Catholic College students got their running shoes on and hit the track for a whole school fun run to help celebrate Catholic Education Week on Monday.
Junior campus students visited the senior campus to participate in a Catholic Education Week College mass before gearing up for the fun run.
Senior campus principal David Burke said the event was a wonderful opportunity to welcome students and teachers from St Mary’s in Bowen to be a part of the celebrations for Catholic Education in the Whitsundays.
The fun run was organised by St Catherine’s Pa- rents and Friends Association with all funds raised going towards promoting health awareness and education in school.
Prep to year 3 students ran a short course of 800m which featured hurdles, tunnels, trampolines and balance beams.
Students from years 4 to 8 participated in a much longer course run- ning around the grounds of the senior campus.
Junior campus principal Sharyn Bell said the event was an excellent day for the whole school community to come together.
“Students were very proud of the number of laps they completed and the part they played in helping to raise funds for the college Parents and Teachers Association,” she said.
“It was also a great opportunity for the junior campus to interact with their senior brothers and sisters.”
