Hub Flames

Jump Rope For Heart Team & Jump Club

The Jump Rope For Heart program was introduced to the school in 2003 to provide an active physical interest for students, in Years 3-5 in particular. Both boys and girls are encouraged to participate. Interested students who are not members of the official team are able to attend Jump Club.

The National Heart Foundation supports the Hub Flames, who take on a role of raising awareness of and promoting the JRFH program. This is done through their performances at school, other schools and community events. The Jump team members are ambassadors for both Aberfoyle Hub Schools and the National Heart Foundation and their significant commitment to the team includes practicing two lunch times per week.

They encourage a healthy lifestyle by engaging in regular exercise and demonstrating that such exercise can be fun, spectacular and an important component of good health.

The team visits other schools two or three times a term and teaches skills to other children. Their performance routine is exciting and motivational. Another activity in the Hub Flames calendar is the Demonstration Teams Championships, where they compete in Jump events.

This program helps students to increase their self-esteem, contribute to the community and develop skills in team work and leadership.
