Circus coming to town to help raise funds for schools

THE CIRCUS is coming to town to help two schools in Rugby fund new resources and experiences for pupils.

The Parent Teacher Associations (PTAs) of Henry Hinde Infant School and its sister Junior School have teamed up with the touring Happy’s Circus, which supports schools and good causes throughout the UK, to host a fund-raising evening of family entertainment.

The all-human, no-animal show features acts including clowns, acrobats, aerialists and magic performed by a 15-strong touring team.

A spokesperson for the PTAs said: “Our aim is to give families the memories of attending a circus while fund-raising, with all profits going directly back into the two schools to provide valuable resources and experiences to enhance pupils’ learning while supporting the curriculum.

“The event is more than just a circus for Henry Hinde schools. It is an opportunity for the pupils’ educational cultural capital to be enhanced with Happy’s Circus providing our schools with circus-themed resources for pupils to learn about circus history, videos, lesson plans, group activities, songs and music.”

The show takes place at Henry Hinde Junior School in Cornwallis Road on Friday June 23, with gates opening at 4.30pm for a 5.30pm start.
