Postponed - Colour Explosion Fun Run


Get ready for a blast of colour!!

Our school will be holding a School Colour Explosion™ Run later this year.  We’re turning our fun run event  from bland to GRAND this year by adding an explosion of colour. The more money we raise the more we can provide for our students through PCG school projects.

What to Wear: We ask that all children wear free dress on the day, most importantly a plain white shirt as they will be covered in coloured powder from head to toe. The powder will likely washout of your child’s clothing, however, we recommend that your child wears clothing that you don’t mind being coloured, and to also bring a towel for after the event. The day’s focus is on fun and fitness with the added benefit of raising funds for our school.

Arrangements for the Run: For the event, students will participate in an obstacle style, fun run course with details of the course and timetable for year levels shared closer to the event. We encourage parents to join us as spectators for the student events, and you may like to join in the staff and parent run at the end of the day.

Colour Powder: The colour powder used in our event is made of high-quality corn starch and permitted food colours. It’s non-toxic, biodegradable, skin safe and environmentally friendly. Toxicological Risk Assessment and ingredient listings can be obtained from the School Office upon request.

Important Safety Information: Students with asthma may choose to participate, however, it is recommended that this decision is one taken with care and consideration of individual need. Please speak with Mrs Tomerini-Smith to discuss some alternative ways that your child may participate and enjoy the fun.

How Does My Child Fundraise? Students have now received a Sponsorship Form with instructions on how to raise money and order prizes. Students can obtain donations in cash using the Sponsorship Form together with online fundraising.

Students who raise as little as $10 or more will receive an incentive prize for their efforts. But why not aim higher? You have the option to choose up to five (5) prizes and this will set your fundraising goal. Family and friends are your greatest supporters, so ask them first for your support. You will reach your fundraising goal in no time.

Important Safety Information: Please ensure children do not door knock or enter a private dwellings unless they are under supervision by a trusted adult. Door knocking is not essential and should only occur during daylight hours.
