Jump Rope For Heart

I am excited to announce that St Edward’s School is participating in Jump Rope for Heart this year – a fantastic fundraising and physical activity program by the Heart Foundation.


By participating in Jump Rope for Heart next term, we are expecting to get our students moving. We’ll have ropes available on the school grounds and encouraging everyone to help raise funds for lifesaving research and support programs.


During the weeks of the program, your child will learn new skills, increase their physical activity, and learn about heart health. The program will end with our school wide ‘Jump Off Day’ on 9th June, 2023 where your child gets to show off their new skipping skills to their friends.

The netball season begins on Saturday 29th April 2023.

Draws will be published on the Tamworth Netball Association Facebook page each week. 

All games are played either inside or outside at the Tamworth Sports Dome. 

Training days will be up to coaches. All training sessions will be at St Edward’s Primary netball courts straight after school. Infants children can catch the Monkey Bus to the Primary. 


Netball uniforms can be purchased through the QKR! App. We do have a small amount of second hand uniforms available for $20 each. 


St Edward’s Netball Club will have 2 Saturdays over the season where we are the “duty club”. This requires us to help set up on a Saturday morning before games start, and someone to sit at the score sheet bench. Please consider helping out! Even if it’s only an hour before or after your game! 


A lot of time and effort goes into putting teams together. We have tried our best to fulfill all requests. 


Looking forward to a fun netball season!
