I would like to thank the whole Harkaway Hills community for your incredible contribution towards the Jump Rope for Heart program.

With such an uncertain end to last term, I wasn’t sure how the program would go. I set an ambitious goal of $1000 for the 3-week program and was completely blown away by our community’s effort to raise an incredible $3,675.14!!! Thank you to everyone who has sponsored our children to skip. This money will go towards research into the cause, diagnosis, treatment and prevention of cardiovascular disease in the Australian community. It has also provided our school with over 80 skipping ropes for our children to enjoy.

The program has also seen a remarkable improvement in the skipping capability of so many of our students. They have been skipping before and after school, at recess and lunchtimes, as well as during P.E lessons. These efforts saw the students demonstrate an amazing array of skips in our Jump Off Afternoon.

For those children who raised enough money to earn a prize, these will arrive at school in the next few weeks.

Thank you again for your contributions and I look forward to our Fun Run at the end of this Term.

Mr. Tilley
