Splash of colour adds fun to fundraising lapathon
Pemberton District High School students got colourful recently to raise more than $4000 for new school sporting equipment.
Students from Pre-Primary to Year 10 competed in a colour run lapathon at the school oval on November 22.
In the lead up to the event, students sought pledges per lap they aimed to complete from parents and family friends.
“Our entire school completed as many laps of the oval as they could in 40 minutes while volunteers — teachers, P&C members and former students — doused them in coloured powder,” principal Lee Illingworth said.
“The event was organised by our P&C to raise funds for new football goals, as well as other sporting equipment.
“Students were provided with water, fruit and icy-poles throughout the afternoon, generously donated by the P&C and local businesses.”
Students completed a total of 1486 laps of the school oval to raise more than $4000 in pledges.
