There was an abundance of colours exploding at Cardinia Primary School, as students of all ages enjoyed a much-needed fun Friday afternoon.

After a particularly difficult year, the school council organised a colour explosion run, which proved the perfect opportunity for the schooling community to let their hair down.

Cardinia Primary School principal Susan Wepster said the event was a chance to reflect on a disrupted year.

“It’s been a terrible year, so an event like this will hope to recreate our sense of community in the school,” she said.

“We are a community school and we have a sense of family in our school.”

But the event was also a chance to raise much-needed funds towards rebuilding the school’s tech room.

The building, which is used to teach a science lesson to every year level once a week, is set to be replaced.

“It’s a big building and it’s falling to pieces. It was built a long time ago by the community, so the repairs will be funded by the community,” Ms Wepster explained.

The school community raised an impressive $14,000 towards the project, on track towards a final goal of $18,000.

To donate to the project, contact the school on 5998 8323.
