Hundreds people enjoyed some colourful fun on Sunday, with the St Joseph’s Colour Fun Run being hailed a huge success. 

Over 370 people came out to enjoy the day, proceeds from which went to supporting the school. 

P&F President Antoinette Cross said she couldn’t keep the smile from her face. 

“It was an amazing day … People just got into the spirit of it. We had people going for five or six laps,” she said.  

“The atmosphere was fantastic with everyone arriving ready to have some fun.”

Mrs Cross said people had come from as far as Wagga and Griffith to participate. 

The course was set out on St Francis De Sales School Oval, with colour stations and water hazards interspersed throughout the run. 


All residents were invited to attend, whether affiliated with the school or not. 

Live music kept people entertained on the day, with Brendan Catanzariti lending his musical talents. 

Principal Mary Jane Simms paid tribute to all of the event’s supporters and volunteers. 

.“I would like to thank St Joseph’s P&F and all the St Joseph’s families who pitched in to make the Colour Run such a great success,” she said. 

The day, she says, was a great opportunity to get out and enjoy family time. 

“Events such as the Colour Run are a great way to raise funds for our school, but they are also an opportunity for families to spend time together...” she said.
