Sun­ny­side stu­dents jug­gling hoops dur­ing the Cir­cus Show.

Nowwith two years of train­ing un­der their belts, the Sun­ny­side stu­dents are be­com­ing quite en­ter­tain­ing with their cir­cus acts, learnt at school through the phys­i­cal ed­u­ca­tion pro­gram and with the help of a pro­fes­sional cir­cus per­former. Over two hun­dred and fifty at­tended the per­for­mance last Thurs­day evening with mem­bers of the com­mu­nity, not just par­ents, com­ing out for the show.

“The show was su­per and the stu­dents were great. Many of the par­ents now want to buy the equip­ment so the kids can prac­tise at home,” said Heather Strat­ton, the sec­re­tary of Sun­ny­side El­e­men­tary. The show, be­sides giv­ing the stu­dents the chance to show off what they’ve learnt, was also a fundraiser to help keep the Cir­cus pro­gram go­ing at the school.

It was stand­ing room only at Sun­ny­side El­e­men­tary’s sec­ond an­nual Cir­cus Show.
