Newsletter – Term 3 Week 10, 2022

September 14, 2022


Dear Parents & Guardians

Did you know that the extra prize for the top boy and girl in each year level is their own private stock of powder to throw at Mr Fitz at the end of the day? Yes, we have ordered a supply just for these privileged 16 students from Kindy to Year 6 and I have a special shirt made with love that has a big red target on it to help with aiming. This along with an ice block from the school will be the culmination of the Colour Run event for the day. Due to the colour on clothing, we have made the decision that if parents or grandparents are in attendance, they may wish to take their children or grandchildren home after the event. Please ensure that they let their designated teacher know before leaving the school.

Here are the details for this Friday if you missed the letter sent home last week.

Colour Explosion Fun Run

Our Colour Explosion Fun Run is just around the corner! It’s not too late to start fundraising, the online system is open until the 16th of September. Please find below some important information about how our event is going to work.

Date: Friday 16th September
Start time: Midday
Dress: Free dress- white shirt is recommended. It’s suggested to wear clothes which you won’t mind getting dirty.

Classes will run the course at approximately the times listed below. Parents are more than welcome to bring a seat and come and watch the fun. There will be a designated parent zone to save you getting coloured. On completing the course students will be provided an ice block and are more than welcome to go home early. Supervision will be provided on the school grounds until 3pm for students who are not able to go home early.


The online fundraising portal is open until the 16th of September so there is still plenty of time to raise some money. The boy and girl from each year level who raises the most money will have the privilege of throwing coloured powder at Mr Fitzgerald as he runs his own student gauntlet. If your child has raised money using the booklet and cash, please return this by Thursday, 15th September so I can include them when working out who is the highest fundraiser. The prize ordering system will then open on the 17th of September and will close on the 23rd of September.

Thanks to all those parents who were able to make Parent/Teacher interviews last week. I also want to acknowledge the teachers and their commitment to their students and also the time away from their families during early mornings and some late evenings. Please remember that if needed, our teachers are always available to be contacted and mutually suitable times for meetings arranged throughout the year.

Have a great final week of Term 3
