Key Learning Outcomes



Juggling is a wonderful skill to learn.  It is an excellent skill as it balances the left and the right hemisphere’s.  Juggling also promotes non competition with others focussing on developing one’s own skills.   It is a excellent way of teaching children how to learn in life as children have to learn to visualise the pattern, to learn the rhythm of juggling, posture and balance.  Children have to develop listening and observational skills in order to get a technique right, they have to learn patience and to be okay with mistakes as they will drop the balls.  Juggling teaches persistence if they wish to reach their goal as a juggler.  Lastly it is about having fun at your own pace and that no-one is better or less than anyone else.  These are the foundations to positive learning.

The juggling workshop focuses on the basics of juggling.  It develops ball skills and coordination.  The students will learn the philosophy of juggling where it is okay to make mistakes, that persistance makes perfect, to balance the left/right hemispheres of the brain and to learn to focus. 

Juggling is a cardiovascular activity and enhances a sense of peacefulness.  It is a skill which takes students out of their heads and into their natural rhythms learning to develop the creative aspects of the brain.  It also facilitates greater coordination skills.  

Juggling skills are excellent as a solo pursuit as kids can practice at home, there is no need for competition just self development. 

The school can provide juggling balls that the children can keep.  These can either be made from balloons and seeds or they can be purchased.
