Sunnyhills School principal Justine Driver stepped up for a jumpathon and slime event fundraiser on Friday.

The school is raising funds for a covered outdoor learning area (COLA) canopy cover over the court area.

Seeking to incentivise the event, targets were set to slime teachers and the principal with $15,000 quickly achieved to slime the principal.

The next target was to get over $20,000 to slime Pakuranga MP Simeon Brown.

Students spent the morning dressed up in their house colours jumping with skipping ropes to music, followed by a community assembly for the slime event and prizegiving.

Eight brave teachers, the principal and MP were all good sports dressed up to be slimed.

The school used the Givealittle crowdfunding platform to collect funds and run a class competition which has successfully raised more than $22,000 towards the $500,000 COLA project.

“Prizes were given out for best dressed child in each year group and participation.
