The Children of Oatlands 'Run 4 Fun'

Run4Fun was a huge success with a very impressive amount of money raised for the school.  We are so proud of all of the children who went to great lengths not only doing the run but in getting such great sponsorship.  Great fun was had by everyone, including the gorillas and lion who encouraged the children to start their run by chasing them!   Congratulations to all involved and to the Parents Council who hosted this event to promote Mobility Week in Oatlands.
