Unfortunately, we have decided to postpone the colour run this afternoon due to the current weather situation and safety concerns. We have rescheduled the event for next Friday the 2ndof June, when the weather forecast is a sunny 24 degrees.
Sorry for any inconvenience this has caused for families. If you are unable to participate next Friday, we are happy to refund your $15. Please contact the school.
Stage 2 of our Landscaping begins today. The yard will have a few disruptions over the next 4-6 weeks. Temporary fencing will be installed this afternoon, restricting your access to the gate next to the primary sand pit.
Please use the already landscaped entrance on Stokes Road for all drop-offs and pick-ups. Alternatively, please use the car park next to the skate park so children can cross the road at the Koala Crossing.
If you have any questions, please contact the school.
Jump Rope for Heart is the Heart Foundation’s primary school skipping challenge that helps kids move more, have fun and raise funds for lifesaving research and programs.
This year we’ve got an audacious goal to see our student Heart Heroes at QAS to log 40 hours of skipping throughout the program!
Register your child online, so they can receive the full benefits of the program and participate in online fundraising, simply follow the link below to get started. www.jumprope.org.au/parents. When registering, please list your child’s base class (Yr F/1, Yr 1/2/2 or Yr 4/5/3).
Students will be skipping throughout the term in PE lessons, and skipping ropes will be available at break times. During this time, you can share their online fundraising page with family and friends to help raise money for this great cause.
We will hold our school Jump Off Day on Friday, 30th of June 2023, at 12pm in the Gym; this will mark the end of the program and is a chance for everyone to come together to skip and show off their newly learned skills. Families are welcome to join us for the event.
Thank you for supporting the Jump Rope for Heart program!
