St Bernadette’s Catholic Primary School students had a colour run and raised money for a good cause.

ST Bernadette’s Catholic Primary School in Port Kennedy came alive with colour on Thursday during the school’s first Colour Run.

The run was organised to raise money for Epilepsy Australia in honour of Year 4 teacher Mary Burns’ son Stephen, who tragically passed away from an epileptic seizure last year at the age of 34.

Staff, parents and students all ran laps of the oval while Year 6s, who organised the run, sprayed coloured powder and water guns on the younger students.

The school raised more than $1300 for the Stephen’s Angels fund which continues to raise money and awareness of the daily struggles adults with epilepsy experience.

Anyone wishing to donate should visit the Epilepsy Australia website.
