Jump Rope for Heart

Jump Rope For Heart is an event that happens in our school every year where we raise money for the Heart Foundation by getting sponsored to skip.

We usually have an assembly where someone from the Heart Foundation comes and talks to us about the importance of exercise and how skipping is a great way to get fit and stay healthy.

On the big day kids bring out their drink bottles and skip as hard as they can. We set up stations around the netball court and kids move from station to station doing lots of fun skipping activities.

The teachers select two leaders for each group of children, and it is their job to make sure the children move to different stations quickly and quietly. You can even get rewards for skipping well and and being quiet between activities!
