Dear Parents/Guardians,
Our school is participating in the Heart Foundation Jump Rope for Heart program and we would love your support!
Heart Foundation Jump Rope for Heart is an exciting and non-competitive program which encourages children to become more active through skipping, learning new skills and raising vital funds for heart research and community health programs. 
Skipping is an excellent way for children to keep fit and healthy. Over the next few weeks, your child(ren) will be learning a range of fun skipping skills and new tricks. We will emphasise the importance of regular physical activity and the importance of healthy eating for a healthy lifestyle.
Jump Rope for Heart is also a great way to encourage children to get involved in our community and support Australia’s leading heart health charity, the Heart Foundation. The Jump Rope team provides us with lots of resources and support to implement the program and in return we ask that students help by seeking sponsorship for their involvement.
• A secure fundraising page will be created as soon as you register; and then you are encouraged to share this link with as many people as possible. This is an easy, safe way for your child to monitor their progress, receive bonus prizes and even receive sponsorship from family and friends who are further afield.
At the end of the program we will be holding a Jump Off, an event to celebrate and culminate the Heart Foundation Jump Rope for Heart program.  This will be held on Tuesday 16th August starting at 2pm.  The Jump Off day is a great opportunity for you to witness how much fun skipping can be, come along and pick up a rope!
Let your teacher know when your child(ren) has finished fundraising online. You may like to print out a copy of the donations received online.
Thank you for joining us in the fight against heart disease.
Yours sincerely,
Kim Bothey
PE Specialist Teacher/ Jump Rope for Heart School Coordinator


Next Thursday morning (4th Aug), there will be some excess furniture available near the first bike shed. You can see what will be available as it is stored in that bike shed at the moment.   On Thursday parents are welcome to take any you might find useful. There are also some wooden framed windows if anyone is renovating. Parents will need to arrange to remove       the items as soon as possible.


On behalf of the Sporting Committee and Fundraising Committee


We greatly appreciate the support with the delicious baked goods, coming down for a sausage, and for the team of volunteers (Kelly B, Sharon, Katie, Mandy, Gemma, Maddie, Paul, Anna and Kelly G and kids coming in to help too – apologies if I left anyone out). Special mention to Paul and Paula Sullivan for being there from 8am cooking sausages. We were sold out by 1pm  – over 700 sausages!

Sausages (gluten free, nut free, dairy free) were from Slape & Sons. They were delicious.

We raised just over $2000!

Money raised goes towards new sporting uniforms & “The Loove” – science/kitchen space.

Please collect your containers from the hall Kitchen before end of term.  Kitchen will be open at drop off and pick up times.


The weather is coming through and it is getting colder by the minute….                         so the athletics trials have been cancelled.

I have rescheduled for this  Thursday 7th July, between12.15pm – 3pm.  Cross fingers the weather is favourable.

Thank you to everyone for being so flexible. I really appreciate it and I am sure our students do too.
