School Run4Fun Colour Explosion


We’re turning our event from bland to GRAND this year by adding an explosion of colour. The more money we raise, the more we can provide for the students through vital school projects, in particular the refurbishment of school playgrounds and funds to support the work of our School Chaplain.

The School Run4Fun Colour Explosion will be held on Friday 15th November 2019 starting at 1pm. To participate, children must wear a plain white t-shirt, old shorts and a sunhat that are suitable to run in the event. Students will be covered in coloured powder as they run. We ask that students please bring a change of clothes. Please note children travelling home by bus will not be allowed to travel unless they have changed into clean clothes and removed any colour from themselves.

There will be various colour powder stations throughout the course with two designated lanes – one for coloured powder, the other with no powder. Your child can still participate in the event should you not wish for them to be sprayed with the coloured powder. The powder is aimed at the torso, however each participant will be given UV 400 sunglasses for added eye protection. The sunglasses are yours to keep after the event. Each student who participates will also receive a support wristband, a rainbow headband and a Berri Quelch fruit juice icy pole on the day.
Plain white t-shirts will be available if required from the uniform store at a cost of $6.00 (Adults $8.00). The t-shirts will be available for order on Flexi-school and will be delivered to your child’s classroom on the morning of the Colour Run. Shirts must be ordered by Friday 8th November.
The day’s focus is on fun and fitness with the added benefit of raising funds for our school. We would like to invite parents to join in on the fun. Volunteers will be required to blast the children with paint as they run on the course, as well as with spraying them with water. BYO water pistols! Would you like to run with your child? Create your own profile in the Admin / Other section.
Colour Powder

biodegradable, skin safe and environmentally friendly. Toxicological Risk Assessment and ingredient listings can be obtained from the School Office upon request. Students with asthma are advised to be careful in their decision to participate.
