Colour Run – just 2 weeks to go

On Friday 3 November we are holding our Crazy Colour Day as a major fundraising event! We’re holding it to raise much needed money for the Secondary toilet upgrade and Primary playground painting.

Are you Fundraising?
Currently we’re still a long way from our goal, so we need everyone to pull together to help. The easiest way to help your child raise money is through online fundraising, where students raise an average of $120. Go to schoolfunrun.com.au, create a student profile page and share your online fundraising link via SMS, Email and Social Media.

If you are currently fundraising, THANK YOU! We hope you will continue to share your link and fundraising for the school.

Competition Time!
Get ready to colour bomb and slime the teachers! As added incentives:
• The highest fundraising student gets to colour bomb Principal Warren Symonds.
• The highest fundraising class/home group gets to colour bomb their Head of School (Olivia Brown if Primary, Tom Leverenz if Middle School and Bob Bastian if Senior School).
• Our highest fundraising secondary house group gets to cover their house leaders in slime!
This will be worth watching, so make sure you’re sharing your link!

About the Day
The Crazy Colour Day is all about Fun! It will be a huge colourful mess and is undoubtably one of the most exciting days on our school’s calendar, with everyone’s participation the aim, so please make sure they attend of the day.

On top of raising more money for the school, students who raise just $10 will be able to choose a prize! They can start ordering from the 30 October until 6 November. Remember, ordering online is the best way to ensure you get what you’d like, so please get online – even if all your money is raised cash.

Frequently Asked Questions

What should my child wear to the event?

Students should wear white or light sun safe clothing to get the most colourful experience. Black looks good too. It’s best to also run in old running shoes. The uniform shop is selling discontinued white REC polo tops for just $2 – assorted sizes available.

Always remember to Slip, Slop, Slap, Seek and Slide!

What should my child bring to the event?

A few things you should pack are:
• A Water Bottle
• Hat
• A Change of Clothes
• Sunscreen
• A Towel
• A pair of Joggers

What if my child has a medical condition? (e.g. Asthma etc.)

For asthmatic children, ensure they have their Ventolin/Asmol and spacer on them or with a responsible person.

As this is a running event, please notify the teachers on the day of any relevant medical conditions and any potential treatments they may need to know.

If you would like to know what is in the colour, ask the school for a copy of the Material Safety Data Sheet.

Thank you, good luck and happy fundraising!
