We thoroughly enjoyed having Shooting Stars Circus Skills in to do the workshop. Paul, the instructor, was organised, friendly with the children and kept them engaged throughout. Pauls explanations and demonstrations were clear and easy to follow. Many of the children were able to do tricks with the spinning plates and flower sticks by the end of the day. - Kayleigh Yik, Teacher

Dear Steve and Jackie
Re Family Learning Day. Just wanted to drop you a note to say a big Thank You to both of you for your support and assistance at our Family Learning Day here at Ravenor Primary as well as throughout the week
From the initial feedback that we gathered on the day, it looks like adults and children both really enjoyed the event - just for information, we had nearly 160 people attend the event, most of whom I think were in your workshops!
Thanks again for all your help and participation.

Circus Themed Week + Family Learning Day

Dear Steve
I have completed your on line questionnaire but I also wanted to say a particular thank you to Russ for his hard work last week. I was also delighted to meet your lovely daughter on Saturday and would like to express my thanks to her for all her help but in particular for her patience in teaching my son to unicycle. He has already ordered one of his own. I was particularly delighted that she also told him she is training to be a barrister- what a role model!
Look forward to using your company again.

What a fantastic day! The boys loved it (and so did I) and have been talking about it ever since. Plenty of variety and something for every taste and level of ability. Paul was superb and interacted extremly well with the boys while maintaining discipline and safety. We will definatly want you to come back.
Thank you!!- Amanda Bee
Waverley School
Waverly is a school for pupils with servere and profound learning difficulties, just to give a bit of a background. All the pupils had a chance to join in, even with the tightrope walking.
The demonstrations were good but could of been a little more small group or individual as some of our pupils have problems focusing on things that are away from them.
Staff participation was at a height - one teacher nearly broke his neck trying to have a go at EVERYTHING.
Generally a great time was had by all and we are saving up for another go. Thank you.- Margaret Regan

I was at both the morning and afternnon sessions with a total of nearly 60 children. The general feeling was one of delight and a sense of achievment, particularly in the session for the year 5 + 6 children. They all enjoyed themselves enormously and were all chatting about it on the Monday afterwards.
A most memorable day in my life as a parent, I even learnt to juggle!
Paul was excellent with the children and they all really warmed to him.- Anne Geary
