The Colour Run

The sun was shining, the football players excited and the students were keen and eager to start their laps.  Running through the inflatable start and finish line, covered in coloured powder was an added incentive to keep the laps going.  The music was pumping, the high 5’s slapping, the big ‘Blue Dog’ dancing and smiles from ear to ear.

We had two AFL Football players, visit to encourage our students at the ‘COLOUR Fun Run’.

Mel Kuys plays in the AFL Women’s League, for Collingwood.  She has played football for the last 20 years, starting at Rowville Hawks and has won more than 6 Premierships flags!

Hayden Crozier is another local footballer, who has played 69 games at Freemantle.  He has just been traded to the Bulldogs and was more than happy to sign some memorabilia!

Some student comments – ‘Getting covered with powder was so much fun.  I had it everywhere.’  “Meeting the footy players was awesome, they were famous.’  ‘We got free sunnies and headbands.’  ‘Everyone was cheering others on, even the parents.’  ‘We got an icy-pole at the end!’  ‘Everyone had fun and tried their best.’  ‘Some of our teachers were really fast runners.’

Some teacher comments – ‘Everyone had the best time, what a way to start the day.’  ‘Let’s use water pistols next year!’  ‘Everyone’s manners were beautiful.’  ‘We should do more of these mornings.’

A big thank you to Karli Pignolet and her team for organising the parent helpers on the day and to the volunteers who gave up their time to make this event such a success.

We will announce the total in a few weeks when the online fund raising has closed.  Thank you!
