Fengshan Primary School Ms Ooi Hui Shan, School Counsellor
I saw my Circus Arts pupils advance from Primary 5 to Primary 6 for the past three cohorts and what I saw were more matured and responsible individuals who now knew that they too had talents despite their lack of success in academic tasks; and this in turn boosted their confidence and self-efficacy; all of these pupils graduated successfully from their first attempt at PSLE. They learnt that from not knowing how (circus arts skills), they now know through putting in practice and perseverance. This experience can only be self-lived and cannot be taught; that is how they overcome the odds by translating the experience into their last hurdle: their studies. Thank you.
Chung Cheng High School (Yishun) Ms Isma Wati, HOD PCCG
A dedicated and caring facilitator and you are able to engage our students’ minds and touch hearts through this activity. The uniqueness of this activity is that you are not only teaching Circus Arts skills to our pupils, but more importantly, you are able to transmit values like determination, patience and care through interaction with the students. This programme helps to build our students’ self esteem through your encouragement and guidance.

Circus In Motion trained the students for a period of 12 weeks, imparting soft-skills such as goal setting and perseverance to the students through Circus skills like juggling balls, pois and diabolos. They also used stilt-walking to help boost the confidence and self-esteem of students by helping them to find courage and overcome their fears.
The trainers from Circus In Motion were dedicated and responsible, and they were very good at encouraging and interacting with the students. They helped to customize the performance according to the students’ strengths and also g -the extra mile in helping-students to prepare for the performance. We have enjoyed the partnership with Circus In Motion and look We forward to working with them in the future.

“Our school engaged Jay and his team to conduct a cohort training for the secondary one students. Not only did they bond strongly with their classmates during the training, they acquired valuable skills such as working in a team, overcoming personal fears and raising their personal confidence level. The trainers are very professional in conducting the training and facilitating the debrief sessions. Thank you for making the programme so memorable and meaningful for the students!”
