We want to celebrate the end of first term and welcome in the Easter Holidays with a Splash of colour! On Thursday 14th April we will be holding a lap-a-thon fitness FUNdraising event with a splash of colour. All students will have 30 minutes to complete as many laps of the oval and obstacle course as they can.
We are delighted to be able to welcome parents to attend our first fundraising event for the year. Family support is key to our fundraising success and we encourage everyone to get involved. Class teachers will be asking for parent volunteers on the day to record laps and help with obstacles. Volunteers will need to sign in at the School Office before making their way to the oval. Whilst onsite we ask all parents for their cooperation with wearing a mask to support the safety and wellbeing of our school community. Click here for the timetable for the day.
Funds raised from the Lap-a-thon will go towards new indoor staging in our Gymnasium that is currently being built. This will be used during whole school assemblies and other special events.
Students will need to come along to the event dressed in a white t-shirt, old shorts and sneakers for running in. If students would prefer not to be squirted with water or colour, for any reason, they can bypass the water and colour stations and will not be squirted. We recommend children who do not wish to be squirted with colour wear a bright multi-coloured t-shirt (instead of a white one) as a way to still be colourful and bright on the day.
To add some extra fun on the day there will be water obstacles as well as some other exciting challenges around the oval. As with last year’s event the colour powder used in the lap-a-thon is made of high quality corn starch and permitted food colours. It’s non-toxic, biodegradable, skin safe and environmentally friendly. An ingredient listing can be obtained from the School Office upon request. Students can recycle their sunglasses from previous events or bring in a pair from home to cover their eyes from the sun and the colour. If you have specific concerns about your child’s health needs, please talk to your child’s class teacher.
This year prizes will be given to the top 10 individual fundraisers, with a special pizza lunch for the class that raises the greatest total amount. Ice blocks will be provided to all students at the end of their laps.
Please note, all donations need to be finalised on or before May 6th. Student prizes and the pizza lunch will be given out at the beginning of Term 2.
Thank you in advance for your participation, and we look forward to seeing you at this FUN and COLOURFUL event!
