The History of Esperance Heartbeats
Heartbeats is the Esperance Primary School skipping team. The Heartbeats is the longest running demonstration skipping team in Western Australia!
It was commenced by Physical Education teacher, Mr. Kevin Martin in 1986 and since then has been an important and prestigious part of the Esperance Primary Physical Education programme. Over the years it has been led by many dedicated teachers. In 2017 Mrs Sasha Vooght-Simpson, Mrs Chris Blair, Mrs Kellie Colquhoun, Miss Kiara Mickel and Mrs Emma Andrews will be working with the dedicated team.
The 2017 Heartbeats
We didn't think we could top 2016 after our awesome celebration of 30 years as a team but I think the new team will have some surprises for us! The Heartbeats team of 2017 have started the year really well. They have been working incredibly hard and have developed some awesome fitness. We love the fact that they have learnt new skills that the coaches haven't seen before, like the Highland Fling! It's also great to see their teamwork.
The Minibeat team should be up and running shortly and we look forward to seeing them develop some impressive skills.
The Jump Rope for Heart team would like to let all students, parents and staff know that the Jump Rope for Heart day will be held in Term 3 at Esperance Primary School. More information to follow.
The Heart Foundation recognises Esperance Primary School as extremely valuable participants in the Jump Rope for Heart program as we enter our 31st year! Thank you for your continued and passionate support of our organisation.
