Students at Mulyan Public School celebrated Youth Week last week by doing star jumps as part of PCYC NSW’s Star Jump Challenge last Wednesday morning.

The event was to raise funds and awareness for youth mental health, with all PCYC NSW clubs participating. With Mulyan Public School hosting Cowra PCYC’s OOSH service, Cowra PCYC teamed up with MPS to host its Star Jump Challenge, with all students at the school participating.

At the time of writing the fundraiser had raised $3965, which was the second highest tally of all PCYC clubs in NSW. Funds were raised by students at MPS making a gold coin donation to enter the Star Jump Challenge, as well as do-nations from the Cowra Bowling Club, Cowra Information and Neighbourhood Centre and Cowra Netball Association, and raffle ticket sales.

Funds raised go straight to PCYC NSW’s ‘GRIT’ program, which is a youth mental health resilience program. The aim is to instate the program across all PCYC clubs in NSW, with just four running it at the moment. Cowra PCYC Manager Geoff Taylor said he approached MPS to run the event because “primary school is where it all starts” for young people. “We had 300 students participate this morning and have raised more money than any other PCYC in NSW [at the time] except for one, which is incred-ible,” he said.

Andrew Briggs, husband of MPS Prin-cipal Cath Briggs, donated his drone on the day to capture aerial photos and video footage to showcase the students star jumping.
