Stu­dents show their true colours

Canning Times - - NEWS -

ORANA Catholic Pri­mary School in Wil­let­ton be­came a sea of colour for a day as stu­dents tack­led a fun-filled ob­sta­cle course for the School Run4Fun Colour Ex­plo­sion.

The day was or­gan­ised by the school’s P&F com­mit­tee and was in­deed a burst of colour and fun as stu­dents ran, jumped and slid their way around the oval to raise funds for their school.

Dressed in white Tshirts, blue shorts and look­ing cool in bright neon sun­glasses, the kids were all smiles and cheers as their friends got sprayed with colour­ful pow­ders at each ob­sta­cle sta­tion.

Orana P&F pres­i­dent Chris Ed­wards said this was the school’s first time par­tic­i­pat­ing and due to its huge suc­cess he was think­ing of mak­ing it an an­nual event.

“The Colour Fun Run was mas­sively fun and to­tally mem­o­rable,’’ he said.

“Woke up tired on Satur­day morn­ing but was well worth the ef­fort.

“So far we have raised $8000 af­ter set-up costs.”

All stu­dents were asked to col­lect do­na­tions from fam­ily and friends ahead of the event, with one stu­dent rais­ing $700.

Mr Ed­wards said the Orana P&F was look­ing for­ward to us­ing the money raised to­ward up­grad­ing con­tem­po­rary class­rooms and flex­i­ble learn­ing spa­ces.
