Stu­dents colour out­side the class­room

The Cobram Courier - - NEWS - By Patrick Tansey

A world of colour and ex­cite­ment was cre­ated when St Joseph’s Pri­mary School hosted its first School Run4­fun on Oc­to­ber 29.

The stu­dents went to school in white t-shirts, but did not stay clean for long, with a wide ar­ray of colours ap­plied through pow­der, sourced from In­dia, the home of Holi Pow­der.

The stu­dents raised money for the event, with prizes of­fered de­pend­ing on amount raised.

‘‘We had some chil­dren that raised over $200 each, which was a fan­tas­tic ef­fort,’’ prin­ci­pal Lucy Keath said.

All money raised will go to buy­ing dig­i­tal tech­nol­ogy equip­ment for the stu­dents and a per­cent­age to­ward Mis­sion Week.

‘‘We will be look­ing at pur­chas­ing some 3D print­ers and pos­si­bly some new iPads, which will be great,’’ Ms Keath said.

The prin­ci­pal said the re­sponse to the event was fan­tas­tic.

‘‘We had heaps of par­ents come and watch, so it was a good St Joey’s event. We’d love to do it again some­time in the fu­ture.’’

She thanked Felic­ity North and all the other par­ents who were in­volved, en­joy­ing the fun with their chil­dren and throw­ing some colour around.

Band­ing to­gether: The school com­mu­nity comes to­gether as one at the fin­ish line cov­ered in dif­fer­ent colours.

Run fun: Teach­ers Francesca Crea and Stephanie Gren­fell.

Fun time: St Joseph’s Pri­mary School stu­dents at the school’s first colour run.
