School visit teaches stu­dents tricks

Harvey-Waroona Reporter - - REPORTER NEWS - David Charlesworth

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.
