Students show their true colours
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.
