Cool, cloudy conditions greeted the Margaret River Primary School community for its third annual 5km fun run from the airport back to the school via the rails to trails network last Friday. The course whilst muddy and wet in areas, failed to dampen the participants enthusiasm for what has become an annual spring event.

Some community members ran, some walked but all returned to the school in time for the fun filled activities taking place after the run throughout the school.

And the fun didn’t stop there!  Back at school after lunch the quadrangle was transformed into stalls and activities.  You can see some of the action in this Smilebox.

A huge thank you to all of our parents and friends of our school who volunteered and joined in this annual school community fundraiser event!  😆 I really want to thank Gabrielle Clark for gladly carrying the camera and snapping key moments throughout the run – what a star!  It’s the community pulling together and your help and support which makes these events worthwhile and just so successful.  Thank you!
