Thank you to date for your support with the School Colour Explosion™ Run. We are well and truly on our way to reach our fundraising goal. The event is not far away which is very exciting.
It is our responsibility to seek permission for your child to participate in the School Colour Explosion™ Run. All measures have been taken to ensure that this event is safe for all students.
There will be various colour powder stations throughout the course with various designated lanes – one for colour powder, the other with no powder. Your child can still participate in the event should you not wish for them to be sprayed with colour powder.
The staff will do their best to throw the powder at the torso, however wind and other factors can cause the powder to protrude on the face. Sunglasses will be supplied to each child participating or bring your own if preferred!
The colour powder used in the event is non-toxic, biodegradable and environmentally friendly consisting of 98% corn starch and 2% food colouring. We ask that your child wears a plain white shirt that you don’t mind being coloured. That’s what the event is all about!
Based on the toxicology profiles of the powders used, their concentrations in the formulation and the mode of use, the colour powder is considered safe for use. Students with lung issues such as asthma are advised to be careful in their decision to participate.
Should you wish to view the ingredient listings and toxicology risk assessment of the powder, please see the staff in the Administration Office.
Get ready for a BLAST OF COLOUR, and thanks in advance for your support! Happy fundraising!
On behalf of the GHPS P&C
