A Dunsborough Cornerstone Christian College student won a party for her school to celebrate her fundraising efforts during Jump Rope for Heart’s 35th birthday year.
Emma Rechichi’s $1000 fundraising effort was the school’s highest individual total.
The school raised more than $3,000.
The party, which was held on May 22, featured Mascot Hearty and Jump Rope for Heart field officer Alex Fernandez will ran skipping games, workshops, competitions, challenges for teachers and demonstrated a few tricks.
Dunsborough Coles and Sweet Stylin provided snacks for the occasion.
Heart Foundation WA chief executive Maurice Swanson said the small school with just over 50 students had achieved an amazing result in only its first year of participating in Jump Rope for Heart.
“I congratulate the students, teacher Rebecca Rechichi, Emma’s Mum, and the Dunsborough community,” she said.
“Not only are students from Cornerstone Christian looking after their own hearts by skipping and being active, they are also looking after the hearts of every Australian by raising funds to help the Heart Foundation continue its life-saving work.”
