Colour run

Colour Run is just a few days away! We hope this great fundraiser will become a yearly event on our school calendar.

We know you might have questions about the Colour-Run so we have put this list together.

What time does Colour-Run start?
The run starts at 1pm. Second break will be moved to slightly earlier that day so that students have time to change into their white shirts and assemble in year levels on the oval with their teachers.

Where is the Colour-Run?
The Colour-Run is taking place over both ovals. The students will follow a designated track on the school ovals and will pass through a number of obstacles and colour zones. There is plenty of room for spectators above both top and bottom ovals.

What do they wear?
We are encouraging everyone to wear a white shirt – it is the best backdrop to highlight the bright rainbow colours.

Is the colour powder safe? The coloured powder is non-toxic, biodegradable and environmentally friendly consisting of 98% corn starch and 2% food colouring. Volunteers will do their best to throw the powder at the torso, but wind and other factors can cause the powder to get on the face. You may wish for your child to bring their own eye protection such as sunglasses or goggles.

Can I come and watch?
Yes, we’d love as many parents as possible to come and cheer on the students as they run! Looking down onto top oval and between the top oval and bottom oval, there will be many areas you can view the event from but please be mindful not to stand on the course track itself. For logistical reasons, we ask that parents do not run with their children and that you do not stand in the finishing area.
If you want to be a little closer to all the action why not grab a white shirt and join the fun as a volunteer - throwing colour and keeping the kids on track.

When does fundraising close?
Fundraising is open until Friday 6 October. All cash should be returned to school with your fundraising booklet on this day only. Online fundraising will also close on 6 October.

Is it too late to sign up for online fundraising?
Not at all! Online fundraising is easy and a great way to share your child's fundraising goal with family and friends near and far, by email or social media. Students who raise just $10 or more will receive a reward and just by jumping online, your family has the chance to win a $30,000 Ultimate Family Experience! Visit to register and for more information.

Will my child’s photo be taken?
We hope to get some great photos of everyone enjoying the afternoon. As per the media / photography disclaimer in the Permission letter, should you have any concerns regarding this, please let Admin know. And if you are a parent taking photos near the colour stations, you might want to place your phone in a zip lock bag!

Any other tips?
Bring a change of clothes or old towel for the trip home, or for your afternoon at PCYC after-school care.
