North Coast TAFE awash with colour

Grafton hosted its first Colour Us event to help promote the institute and bring some colour to people's lives.

No shirt was left uncoloured as people walked around the campus while doused in coloured powder, before taking part in the grand finale – an all-in colour explosion.

Local music stars Milly Deefholts and Natasha Moore also took part in the event and filmed part of a new music clip as they were showered in sprays of colour.

North Coast TAFE community and business engagement leader Tania Williams said the event was a great way to let the community know that TAFE was there for them.

"It was a concept that some students and one of our teachers thought of, and they believed it would be a fun event to celebrate student life, and bring the community together to have some fun," she said.

Ms Williams said the event was a great way to bring some colour into people's lives, and was symbolic of a student's journey and how TAFE could add colour and fun."We are looking at how we can turn a concept that is really fun and share our campus with the community," she said.
