LAST Friday afternoon was a fistful of flying colours as students from Koorana primary engaged in a colour run on the school’s oval.

With loud funky tunes blaring, the students were put through their paces running through a series of check points where bursts of powdered colour were thrown on them.

To ensure the colours did indeed ‘run,’ members of the Rockingham Volunteer Fire Brigade were on hand offering a friendly splash down with the fire truck’s hose.

Teacher Terice Evans said the P&C organised fundraiser was a fun day.

“The students decked themselves out in white clothes and donned the provided sweatbands, wristbands and sunglasses,” she said.

“The course, which included some obstacle features, had a number of colour stations where students were squirted with environmentally friendly, coloured powder.

“Our local fire crew came to the party providing the students with a dousing of water.

“Thanks must go to our local Fire Brigade, the Koorana P&C and everyone involved for making it a truly fabulous and successful fundraising Friday.”
