The Laurieton Public School community has every reason to be very proud of their students.
Kindergarten through to Year Six combined together to complete eight high energy activities to raise money for the Heart Foundation in their recent Jump Rope for Heart Day.
It was a sight to behold, to see all stages of the school enthusiastically involved in all activities and demonstrating outstanding behaviour and sportsmanship.
The students had the opportunity to skip with long ropes, multiple ropes, partners and hoops. They also took part in skipping relays, sack races, endurance skipping, helicopter games and freestyle skipping with music.
This year the school had a number of students take their fundraising efforts online.
School captain Will McCoubrie, led the way with this personal fundraising effort of $1096.
Will knew that if he raised over $1000 he would earn himself the reward of a bike.
Selflessly, Will decided he would like to donate the bike to the Beach to Beach project, to then raffle to create more fundraising.
He produced a video to show how people could support his cause called ‘Its About You and Me’.
Fundraising online was a huge success, raising a total $6407.
On top of this was $2027 raised through traditional sponsorship processes, together reaching the grand total of $8434. An unbelievable effort by a school of this size.
