Harmony Day 2020
Colour Explosion Run
From today, we commence our participation in the School Colour Explosion™ Run initiative. We ask for your support for this as our major fundraiser for this year. The more money we raise the more we can provide for the students through vital school projects, in particular major upgrades to our playground facilities.
The School Colour Explosion™ Run will be held on Friday 6th March starting at 1:30pm and will form part of our Harmony Day celebrations. We ask that children wear casual clothes on this day, most importantly a plain white t-shirt as the students will be covered in powder from head to toe. The day’s focus is on diversity, inclusion and fun with the added benefit of raising funds for our school.
HOW DOES MY CHILD FUNDRAISE? Students have now received a Sponsorship Form with instructions on how to raise money and order prizes. Students obtain donations in cash using the Sponsorship Form together with online fundraising.
Students who raise as little as $10 or more will receive an incentive prize for their efforts. But why not aim higher? You have the option to choose up to five (5) prizes and this will set your fundraising goal. Family and friends are your greatest supporters, so ask them first for your support. You will reach your fundraising goal in no time.
STUDENT PROFILE PAGE:
Create a Student Profile Page at www.myprofilepage.com.au which is unique to you. There are also some great features like creating your own avatar, selecting your prize goal and recording your sponsorships.
You can also register for online fundraising. It’s the easiest way to help your child raise money and to reach your fundraising goal sooner. You can share your fundraising page to family and friends through Facebook, Twitter, email and even text message with a few simple clicks.
