Cirkidz

Inspired by the festival season? Now it’s your turn to give it a go! 
About the programs:
Cirkidz programs are built with a focus on mindfulness, safe risk taking, inclusion, social interaction and are reflective of the Future of Work requirements which predict the creative and strategic learning and thinking skills that our students will need in the future.

They also have the science to back them up! Recent UniSA research studies show an increase in student motivation and engagement as well as enhanced task management skills when participating in circus activities at school. So basically what we are saying is YES circus is really fun, but it’s also very beneficial for you
