First colour run a huge hit with pupils

Pupils swapped their uniforms for an array of vibrant colours at a school’s first colour run.

Newbarns Primary and Nursery School in Barrow held the sponsored run on the playing fields.

They completed laps while being covered head to toe in colourful powder by teachers and parents.

Headteacher Gary Birkett said it had been brilliant fun and thanked staff and volunteers for organising and running the event, which is raising money for additional fun activities for the children.

“Our pupils are always happy but to see the joy on their faces at this event was a great end to the week. Especially for our Year 6 pupils who had worked so hard on their SATs.

“Our nursery and reception pupils also joined in with a bubble run in the morning, it was magical to see them dashing around the course through the bubbles.”

Newbarns Primary and Nursery School is part of South Cumbria Multi-Academy Trust.
