Huff 'n Puff - Thank you for your support

Wow, what an amazing afternoon we had on Friday, the atmosphere was electric and the kids were all buzzing - weren't we so lucky with the weather!  

It was so wonderful to see all the children and teachers dressed in their house colours and with their running feet on.  The chants were brilliant and was cool to see the friendly rivalry between the houses and ongoing positive support of all the runners.


Some interesting facts:

  • Students ran over 5200 laps = 520,000 meters = 520 kilometers
  • Teacher & Parents Relay team 
    • Sponsored to run 205 laps
    • Team actually completed 321 laps - you guys were brilliant
    • Team raised $380

Without the following support the afternoon wouldn't have been the success it was.


  • To the Huff 'n Puff team - Kylee L, Amanda P, Danielle G & Claire A, working behind the scenes to organise and ensure a smoothly run event.  
  • To our amazing house captains for all their hard work setting up, awesome house chants and fabulous support towards other students - you guys are wonderful role models.
  • To all the teaching staff who got behind the students and their houses and the Teacher & Parent relay team, you all nailed it.  Your support and enthusiasm was awesome!
  • To all the super parents helpers on the day, marking off laps, handing out the drinks and wristbands, writing up laps, participated in the Teacher & Parent relay team and with the clean up, we wouldn't have been able to do it without you.
  • To all the parents, grandparents who gave up their afternoon to support their children, it was great to see so much support from our community.
