Students who walked or rode to school were rewarded with a healthy breakfast to fuel them for a lapathon.

Deputy principal Kim Atkins said students asked family and friends to sponsor their participation in the lapathon with either a single donation or donation per oval lap.

Funds contributed to sporting equipment, literacy and numeracy resources and other initiatives such as the environment garden, curriculum enrichment and music program.

‘Fundraising allows the school to prioritise additional resources that support class programs,’ Ms Atkins said.
