St Joseph’s Primary School, Taree students and staff left Old Bar Beach doused in all the colours of the rainbow following the annual Walk-a-thon and Dye Hard Colour Run.
The event, held on Friday, November 30, was used to recognise Catholic Mission Day and raise funds for those less fortunate around the world.
Students ran up and down the beach before being covered in colour powder at the end of each lap.
At the end of the run, they enjoyed a picnic lunch and beach activities to cap off the day.
Each student received sponsorship to participate in the run.
Student Hannah Chicken said the school community banded together to raise thousands of dollars while at the same time having fun.
“We’ve been sponsored for all the people who are doing it tough over the world, not just in our local community,” Hannah said.
“It’s been fun having all of the colour sprayed at you.”
Some students considered the repercussions of bringing their dye soaked clothes home.
“Our parents probably won’t be very happy,” Leah Boughton smirked after surveying her classmates.
“Yeah, we could get into a lot of trouble,” Eve Weeks added.
This was the second successive year the school has held a colour run.
