Stage 2 Camp News

Stage 2 Camp was a great success, full of fun and excitement. The students were a delight to take away and eager to try all activities. The teachers worked very hard behind the scenes to make it all happen, as well as during camp.  

We loved camp! We really enjoyed kayaking and canoeing and spending time in the cabins with our friends. Getting to know each other outside of school was really great. We also loved the challenges with orienteering and trying to work out the answers. Violet and Maya

We loved most of the activities at camp. I (Grace) really liked archery and trying to get the target. I (Abby) liked the scootering and making damper. The food was delicious, more so the breakfast rather than dinner. Abby and Grace

I had lots of fun on camp. I really liked the breakfast and kayaking. Staying away from home with all my friends was really fun. Elliot T

I had the best time at camp, I especially liked the cabins and staying with my friends. Frankie T

I liked doing archery and learning how to use the equipment. After a few tries I was able to hit the target. Megumi

I liked Kayaking and the cabins, it was just so much fun. I also really liked archery. Natalie

I really kayaking, it wasn’t as cold as I thought, it was surprisingly warm. I also really enjoyed archery and loved how they gave us a variety of food. Will

I really enjoyed archery the most. I also really enjoyed kayaking but it was really hard to paddle and move the kayak. Amelia

I liked kayaking the best and the night time activities because we don’t normally get to do that at home. Rose

Jump Rope For Heart 

Jump Rope for Heart kicks off in term 4!

Great news - South Coogee PS is participating in Jump Rope for Heart – a fantastic physical activity and fundraising program that the Heart Foundation has been running for 40 years. It’s a great way for your child to keep fit and learn new skills, but it also helps raise funds for vital heart research and education programs.

Since Jump Rope for Heart started in 1983, schools like ours have raised more than $104 million for the Heart Foundation’s lifesaving work.

Students will be skipping throughout the term in PE classes and during their lunch breaks. During this time you can share your fundraising page with family and friends to help raise money for this great cause.

We will hold our school Jump Off Day on Tuesday, November 15th. This will mark the end of the program and is a chance for students to show off their newly learned skills.

We will be officially launching the program in Week 1, Term 4. However, you can get ahead and sign up today.

To make fundraising fun and easy, you can create your own secure webpage at

Sign up to share your child’s progress and let the funds roll in. Your child can earn virtual badges along the way and your page will highlight the prizes up for grabs.

Sign up here today:

Thank you for supporting the Jump Rope for Heart program!
