Run, run, run

LEONGATHA Primary School students ran rings around their oval on Tuesday, September 16 during the school lapathon.

During the fundraising event, all school students completed as many laps of the oval as they could in 30 minutes, earning sponsorship money generously provided to the school by family and friends.

The money will go towards improved sport facilities for the school.

“We’re building a junior basketball court in the Prep area,” Leongatha Primary School principal Rob Higgins said.

Students completed their laps by running, walking or, for those in wheelchairs, rolling across the grass.

The young athletes were rewarded with an icypole at the completion of the event.
