Dear Parents and Guardians,
Today you will be receiving a letter in your child's bag regarding an upcoming 'colour run' event, but to be sure, we've included all the important details and dates below. More information and reminders will be sent throughout the term.
This term, we are hosting a Colour Explosion School Fun Run to help us fundraise for new classroom furniture for the classrooms that are being refurbished at the end of the year. Our Student Council is working hard brain-storming course ideas to make this a very wet and colourful run.
When is the Colour Explosion School Fun Run? We will be hosting our Colour Explosion School Fun Run on 3 December 2021 from 1:30pm to 3:00pm. Parents are welcome to attend as spectators, participants or volunteers – more information to come later in the term. Make sure students bring a WHITE shirt to wear during the Fun Run. They will be covered in non-toxic, biodegradable colour powder from head to toe!
Is the powder safe? The non-toxic colour powder is made of high-quality corn starch and permitted food colours, so it’s safe for skin and eyes. Students with asthma are advised to be careful in their decision to participate. If, after reading all about this event (including the attached Safety Data Sheet), you do not wish for your child to participate, you can opt-out via the Qkr! app. Please do so as soon as possible so we can make alternate arrangements for your child on the day.
How does my child fundraise? Your child can accept donations online by creating a cybersafe fundraising profile at myprofilepage.com.au. Fundraising will close on 23 November. ALL FUNDRAISING NEEDS TO BE ELECTRONIC, and we are unable to accept cash (which is incorrectly listed as an option on the generic letter). There are also rewards for top fundraisers and the class with the most fundraising profiles, which are detailed in the hardcopy fundraising book being sent home today.
How do I order my child’s incentive prizes? You can order your child’s prizes online at myprofilepage.com.au between 13 - 23 November. Order one prize based on the total amount of dollars raised, or mix and match smaller prizes.
