For the past three years, Circus in Education has directed a social circus program at Coraki Public School. We are pleased to have received national recognition of the positive outcomes of this project through a feature slot on ABC’s 7:30 Report.
A beautifully crafted show, Strong Lady tells the story of Betty Brawn – a lady of great strength who breaks down gender stereotypes. Throughout the show Betty Brawn, played by circus artist, Charmaine Childs, tears whole novels in half, breaks steel chains and lifts two grown men into the air to form a human carousel!
Students from Lawrence Public School have responded to their recent circus performance with some fantastic pictures and writing.
School circus workshops at Coraki Public School have demonstrated the positive effects that circus can have. These positive outcomes have been made possible through partnerships formed between Circus in Education and Spaghetti Circus of Mullumbimby. For the second year in a row, Circus in Education and Spaghetti Circus have been delivering circus workshops at Coraki Public School with spectacular results.
