School visit teaches students tricks
HARVEY’S St Anne’s Primary School had the treat of a live circus performance from visiting Assumption Catholic Primary School students on Wednesday.
Students from the Mandurah-based school dropped by to share skills they had learnt over the previous two terms, performing in front of all St Anne’s students. St Anne’s principal Darrin Croft accepted the school’s offer to perform as it had at his previous school in Pinjarra last year.
Assumption Year 6 teacher Sue Arthur said the program encouraged concentration with fun skills and fitness to learn.
The program took off five years ago with the students learning skills in class and practising in their own time. Mr Croft said the students’ performance was outstanding.
“I think our students were blown away,” he said.
“It might actually trigger a couple of our kids to want to challenge themselves.”
After the performance, Year 6 St Anne’s students mixed with the Assumption students to give some of the tricks a go themselves.
