Examples of focused projects Corrugated Iron have delivered

Physical intensives with disengaged learners and at-risk students

  • Disengaged students attend Corrugated Iron for highly energetic mini-tramp workout and challenging aerial trapeze sessions.

  • Schools identify a cohort who benefit from a different approach and we work with them to design a project that requires collaboration and team approach.

  • A long-term school residency working with identified cohort saw them develop circus skills that led to hosting assemblies and running lunchtime circus workshops.


Middle school programs building healthy relationships

  • Music video project with year seven girls finding transition to middle school challenging. They wrote, recorded and made a video clip of a song about finding their identify. Changed self-esteem and confidence.

  • Forum theatre project with year nine students is focused on healthy relationships - identifying the qualities and examining scenarios and strategies for ensuring they adopt good practices in relationship building with peers and others. Was created in direct response to a cohort with challenging relationships.

Corrugated Iron works with the curriculum

  • Circus Curriculum development - Corrugated Iron has been delivering a circus program at Ludmilla Primary for four years. We work with all students building circus skills and performance capacity one day each week. Our partnership is now focussed on developing a circus curriculum linked to Health and PE curriculum.
