A FEAST for the senses made running a whole lot more fun than it usually is for a large group of Leeton students.
Gralee School recently hosted its annual sensory fun run, now in its third year, to many shouts of delight and laughs along the way.
Students from several schools in the shire, including youngsters from preschool and daycare, joined in the adventure.
The run started with the sensory tubs, which included slime and sand, before moving on to the course which had been set up around the school area.
Students were encouraged to run or walk the course where possible, navigating water being sprayed on them, colourful streamers hanging from trees, and having colour thrown on them.
Gralee School's Carly Dunn said the idea was to encourage participation in such an event, while making connections at the same time.
"It's something we created to give those kids who don't really like cross country or can't compete as such, something that is similar, but also really fun," she said.
"It was amazing to see all of the students taking part.
"We had 130 kids here, which was amazing. We've only got a small number of students enrolled at Gralee, so to have the support of that many schools and their students was great.
"It's a good opportunity for our students to also socialise with others."
The sensory fun run ensured all the participants were active, but also soaking in the entire day, physically and mentally.
Ms Dunn was certain about one thing and that was everyone went home happy, but exhausted.
