Students colour outside the classroom
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.
