The students of Orange Public School took a leap towards good health on Tuesday as part of their participation in Jump Rope for Heart.
The grade five and six students took part in a workshop to pick up some skipping skills and rope games for the playground.
Tuesday's high-flying activities tied in with the whole-school's fundraising efforts for The Heart Foundation.

Year six teacher and Jump Rope coordinator Ashleigh Allwood said taking part in Jump Rope for Heart puts the focus on keeping kids holistically healthy, with a special focus on heart health.
"It's about awareness on how they can maintain their health and be part of a common initiative," she said.
The students raised more than $25,000 for the Heart Foundation last year and have set themselves a $20,000 target this year.
Last year's top fundraiser at Orange Public, Cian Gollner, raised more money than any student in Australia.
Cian was treated for a rare form of cancer and had open heart surgery a year-and-a-half-ago.
The little Aussie battler raised more than $6000 in 2018.
