On Wednesday 19 June, Year 7 students united for a fun and invigorating session of skipping to raise funds for the Jump Rope for Heart (JRFH) Program. The Program educates students on how to keep fit and healthy and raises money to support research of heart disease and stroke in Australia.
Year 7 students are introduced to the Service Program at Girls Grammar by supporting this charity and this year our cohort set a goal to raise $10 000. Last term, The Sherwood Arrows Skipping team provided girls with a wonderful demonstration of their skipping talents and abilities. This certainly motivated and inspired our cohort to participate in JRFH.
Dressed in house colours, the cohort came together full of spirit as we enjoyed the ‘skip-off’ day. We were also delighted to be surprised by the JRFH mascot, Happy Heart.
Congratulations to the Year 7 cohort on raising $12 819.61 and thank you to all who contributed to this worthy cause. Overall, this year’s JRFH event was a huge success and a highlight for all Year 7 students. We are thankful to have had this opportunity and are excited to continue in the Service Program at Girls Grammar.
Thank you to Ms Rees for organising this event and to our Principal, Ms Euler, for continuing to support girls to participate in initiatives such as JRFH.
