Big Top show was a great sur­prise

Macclesfield Express - - HEART OF THE COMMUNITY -

PRI­MARY school pupils be­came cir­cus stars for the day in a sur­prise end of term event.

Chil­dren at Gawsworth Pri­mary School had no idea a cir­cus was com­ing un­til a Big Top showed up on their school field.

The young­sters spun plates, jug­gled and tried their hand at stilt walk­ing, hula hoop­ing and ac­ro­bat­ics as part of a spe­cial end of term ‘treat’ day or­gan­ised by the school’s Par­ent Teacher As­so­ci­a­tion, Friends of Gawsworth.

Per­form­ers from Cir­cus Sen­si­ble showed off their skills for the first half of the day. They then fol­lowed their per­for­mances with ses­sions teach­ing the chil­dren some of the skills they had seen.

Head­teacher Pam Childs said: “The chil­dren had a mar­vel­lous time.

“They were thrilled as it is ev­ery child’s dream to take part in a cir­cus.

“They have even been prac­tis­ing spin­ning plates at home – we haven’t had any com­plaints from par­ents yet!”

She added: “The day was all thanks to the Friends of Gawsworth Com­mit­tee.

“I would like to say a huge thank you to them for putting it on for free.”
