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.</p><p><strong>Arrangements for the Run:</strong> 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.</p><p><strong>Colour Powder: </strong>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.<br></p><p><strong>Important Safety Information</strong>: 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.</p><p><strong>How Does My Child Fundraise?</strong> 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.</p><p>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.</p><p><strong>Important Safety Information</strong>: 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.</p><p><strong>Student Profile Page.</strong> Create a Student Profile Page at www.myprofilepage.com.au which is unique to you. There are also some great features like creating your own avatar, selecting your prize goal and recording your sponsorships. You can also register for online fundraising. It’s the easiest way to help your child raise money and to reach your fundraising goal sooner. You can share your fundraising page to family and friends through Facebook, Twitter, email and even text message with a few simple clicks.</p><br></div><p><strong>How to Order Prizes? </strong>To reward your child for their efforts, they will receive incentive prizes based on the total amount of sponsorship dollars raised in cash and online. You have two options to place your prize order:</p><p>1. Login to your Student Profile Page at <a href="http://www.myprofilepage.com.au/" target="_blank">www.myprofilepage.com.au</a>. Once the fundraiser has finished, click the ‘ORDER MY PRIZE’ button via the dashboard,</p><p>OR</p><p>2.
