TTC PE Colour Run 2021

On Tuesday 7 September 2021, student from Years 7, 8 and 9 took to the school field to run 6k and raise money for "North East Essex Mind" and "Lad need Dads". The field was covered not just in colour but also huge smiles, laughter, clapping, excitement and energy. What a fantastic atmosphere and spectacular success for the start of our school year.

Here are a few quotes from staff, students, and parents describing the event:


“A vibrant Colour Run on our school field in the glorious sunshine - what a fantastic way to start the school year!” Staff

The atmosphere was fantastic. The weather was great. Over 900 runners took part, which was great to see.” - Student.

“ I was covered in paint from head to toe, I even got it on my hair. What I really liked is that I got to mix with other students in other year groups which we haven't been able to do over the last 2 years. Hope we do this next year” Student.

“ The PE department always put on such great events, let's do it again in the summer” staff
