Students Learn the Art of Taking Healthy Risks 

Halls Head Primary school students are taking clowning around at school to a whole new level, thanks to a partnership with Mandurah's prestigious circus company, Pulse Circus.

Year 6 students have been  learning circus skills at school as part of their Performing Arts education. The program has been immensely popular with students, and also extremely beneficial:

Pulse Circus is not only a tonne of fun, but is also a brilliant way to teach students about the art of taking healthy risks.  Students have been  building confidence, teamwork and safety skills - as well as learning some pretty awesome tricks!

Pulse Circus Director Tracy Harrington agrees: "Taking risks is something most young people are compelled to do," Ms Harrington said, "the Pulse Circus program encourages them to explore this in a safe, controlled and healthy way. Very quickly they learn to look out for each other and make safe choices"
