Circus Skills Fun day

It is always a worry when you’ve booked something for the first time because you never know if it’s going to be right for your children but Leanne was brilliant. The children and staff both enjoyed her workshop and thought she was very entertaining. She kept the children engaged and gave the staff chances to be as involve as the children.
Leanne has left a lasting expression on the children and skills they can continue learning. We would love to book again.
Thank you.- Teacher, Teacher

Dear Steve,
Following the good fun at your training course I've now done my first lunchtime session with 6 Year 2s - WOW they were just as excited and giggly as i was, after the session they ran across the playground to immediatly tell all their friends what they'd been doing (feather balancing) and are really enthusiastic for next weeks session, can we come tomorrow they asked!
I've given the Head dates of your availability so will get in touch as soon as she comes back to me.
The children were just so enthused about the whole thing i just had to let you know.
No doubt you get this good buzz often.
I will contact you soon,
Jane Cradock.

As a Headteacher of a special school for secondary aged boys with significant and persisting emotional and behavioural difficulties, I was absolutely delighted with the impact made by Shooting Stars Circus Skills. They grabbed the boys’ attention from the outset, kept them motivated and positively involved throughout the day. The variety of activities was exceptional with all boys active for the whole day. Without doubt, this was the most successful activity session provided in school by external personnel. An excellent day!
Mr Quin “A truly wicked day with all the boys gaining confidence and greater self esteem. All the boys were kept motivated and on task through great leadership. Thanks for a great day.
- Mr MJ Turner, Headteacher
