Smiles, laughter and squeals of delight ensure St James' Primary School's annual Colour Run is another success

PUPILS swapped the classrooms for the great outdoors at St James’ Primary School on Friday – and didn’t it brighten their day?

More than 200 youngsters took part in the second annual Colour Run, which made such an impact in its inaugural year in 2017.

While some students flew around the course in record time, being bombarded with shades of orange, pink, blue and more, others were happy to pace themselves and receive a drenching from the boys from Muswellbrook Fire & Rescue.

“After the success of our first one, everyone – from the staff, teachers and kids – was looking forward to it again,” acting principal Ashley Borg said.

“We’re raising funds for the Parents & Friends Association, which will go towards new bubblers for the school.”

The smiles, laughter and squeals of delight witnessed on Friday will ensure the 2019 edition will be just as popular – and another hits.
