Colour Run for Charity

Our Penbank campus ran for a cause last Friday.

Students from Prep to Year 6 did a sponsored Colour Run to raise money for Melbourne Zoo’s Orangutan breeding and enrichment program.

Three-quarters of the world’s Orangutan population call the rainforests of Sumatra, Indonesia home. This critically endangered species is under constant threat of extinction due to habitat loss at the hands of a non-sustainable palm oil industry. The fundraising efforts are an extension of the student’s Indonesian language and culture program and brings home the reality of this global issue.

We can all do our bit to fight their extinction by voting with our pockets, checking food labels, and refusing to buy products containing palm oil.
