Puffs of colour filled the air at St Joseph’s College as pupils were pelted by powder paint by their teachers during a “fabulous” charity race in the school field.
Girls and boys from both the prep and senior school tackled the messy event and helped to raise almost £1,000 for East Anglian Air Ambulance.
Principal Danielle Clarke said: “The Colour Run represents everything that’s so fabulous about St Joseph’s – it was vibrant, inclusive, fun and for a good cause.
“All our girls and boys from three to 18 are regularly encouraged to embrace new and different experiences, especially when they are beneficial to others and not just to themselves.”
The children ran a course around the Ipswich campus while staff cheered on from the sidelines and helped them get covered in colour. After the event, which took place at the end of last month, runners were given instructions about how they could get their sports kits back to the normal colour.
A spokeswoman for East Anglian Air Ambulance said: “We are delighted to hear that these young people have worked so hard to raise money for our life-saving charity.
“Thank you from all of us to all of them.”
