Students jump into fundraising

YEAR 6 students at Silkstone State School spent one of their last days of term skipping up a storm for charity.

The Jump Rope for Heart event raised more than the school's target of $500 for the Heart Foundation, Year 6 teacher Angela Jackson said.

"The students raised more than they originally aimed to through sponsorship, so that was great," Ms Jackson said.

"The event also promoted healthy lifestyle activities by getting everyone involved in jumping and skipping activities."

Ms Jackson said the students took part in a one hour and 45 minute Jump Rope for Heart circuit, which included many fun activity stops.

"There were stations for double-dutch skipping, pattern-skipping, skipping with partners and jumping games like Helicopter that people might remember from primary school," she said
