FUN RUN EVENT (Friday 3 December 1pm - 3pm)

To celebrate our fundraising efforts we are looking forward to the Colour Run in Week 9. Parents and family members are welcome to attend to join in/watch the fun!

Children are to wear free dress shorts and their school uniform shirt to school.

After first break, children will change into their white shirts – classroom teachers have been collecting these from children.

We will only be having one lunch break at 11:00am. There will be no second break. Children can have a snack down at the oval after/before their run.

12:45pm Assemble on oval: Classes will start to move down to the oval with their school bags. Children will sit under shade tents on the oval with their teachers. Children will run bare foot for the event. Shoes and socks will be taken off once seated under the tents.

1:00pm Colour Explosion Fun Run commences in the following order: 

- Year 2

- Year 3

- Year 4

- Year 5

- Prep

- Year 1

- Year 6

- Teacher and parent race

2:40pm Slime the Teacher: Staff members have nominated themselves to be ‘slimed’ at the end of the fun run. The top fundraisers will each receive a bucket of slime to tip all over a staff member. These students will be announced next week.

3:00pm Students leave from the oval with their bags.

3:30pm P&C Family BBQ event on the oval – everyone welcome! More details to come from the P&C. 

Thank you for your ongoing support of this event.
