For many years I was an ‘Authorised Performer’ in the ‘N.S.W. Performances For Schools Program’ with 5 Magic Shows available until the N.S.W. Department Of Education ceased authorising any performers. I still perform general magic shows and educational magic shows in primary schools. I also provides a magic workshop and a balloon twisting workshop. My primary school shows are of 50 minutes duration. Every show uses volunteers in the show. I can perform just a magic show or a show with a teaching element.
PLEASE NOTE: At this point in time my educational shows contain a 15 to 20 minute educational content section. Schools stopped booking full educational shows and kept asking for a fun show with some educational content. So that is what I now provide, a fun show with a ‘block’ of educational content. Seems teachers and students enjoy this format.
This is my most popular option at this time of writing. As the name says, this option is just for fun. Lots of fun tricks and hilarious audience involvement. It can be for a broad age range of K to 6 or tailored to specific years. Very popular for end of year celebrations or special school occasions.
This option has been popular for Primary Schools requiring an environmental type show. I used to perform a 45 to 50 show with a strong teaching element throughout the whole show. In recent years school have not seemed to be interested in the full themed show. So now I only offer the show with a general magic show at the beginning and end with a 15 to 20 minutes teaching element in the middle. All of the show is a lot of fun for the kids.
I think every school should have this content. What a great target to have, to make your school a no bully zone.

Great principles and a lot of fun. Still available as full 45 to 50 minute show. Lots of audience participation. Suits mainly K-2.
Awesome to see the children suddenly learn to so something and amaze even themselves! Fun incursion where the children learn magic tricks and pop them in a bag to take home and trick others. 60 minutes duration.
This incursion is especially encouraging for students. The learn to properly use a balloon pump and to tie the knot in the balloon. They learn a number of balloon twists and get really excited about their new found skill.
