Jump Rope For Heart – Jump Off Day 16th August

Our school is launching the Jump Rope for Heart program this week. Students are being given a letter (attached) outlining how to register on line and a sponsorship brochure so they can raise money for the Heart Foundation to continue their research.

Did you know that heart attacks are the biggest killer in Australia at this present time. A healthy and active lifestyle is so important for us all.

Jump Off Day is Tuesday 16th August from 2pm.

Enjoy your skipping activities.
