Oatley Public School’s Jump Rope for Heart Fundraiser

Thursday, 26 September 2019

Speaker, I rise to acknowledge the great work of Oatley Public School students in their fundraising efforts for the Heart Foundation’s Jump Rope for Heart Initiative.

Jump Rope for Heart is a physical activity program for schools, which aims to encourage a positive attitude towards exercise, healthy eating and heart health.
