Munglinup Primary School held a colour fun run

The 14 students at Munglinup Primary School flew past their fundraising goal within days in the lead up to their colour fun run.

On November 2, the school held the run to raise funds for the Daniel Morcombe Foundation, which teaches children about safety and stranger danger.

Principal Elizabeth Cox said she set the students a goal of $700 but they ended up raising a total of $2424.

This included a $200 donation from Wesfarmers Insurance. 

Mrs Cox said the school’s P&C organised an obstacle course at the Equestrian Club and at a local farmer’s ground.

The student councillors prepared the fundraising and ran the event. 

The P&C also organised a sausage sizzle on the day, which required a gold coin donation.

The Munglinup Fire Brigade provided fire safety lessons and the ambulance spoke to the students about treating snake bites and showed them the ambulance. 

Mrs Cox said the day was a great success.

“It was a fantastic day that pulled the community together in support of a great cause,” she said.
