The Colour Run is about having fun together and all children are welcome to join in. 

In preparation, it would be appreciated if families continued to support the fundraiser by working to get sponsorship from friends and family.  

You can provide them with your child’s fundraising link and they can donate online. 

Every dollar helps the PTN with their fundraising target and every dollar raised is donated to the school to be used for improvements in outdoor learning and play spaces at Cockle Bay School. 

Sincere thanks to all the P.T.N. and its supporters for providing fun and helping to fundraise.
