Yo-yo-ing their way through school

yoyo thumbImagine if a spaceship landed on your school grounds, and out came a girl with a case full of Yo-Yos, and a boy on a poster, to talk to you?

That's what happened to the students at St Paul's Lutheran Primary School last week, when the NED show visited. The students watched in awe as dozens of amazing Yo-Yo tricks captured their imaginations and the energetic show style had them laughing fit to burst.

"That was the best show we'd ever seen!" said the Preppies, at the end of the show. "We can't wait to get our own Yo-Yos now, and practice those tricks for ourselves!"

The NED show teaches children a very important message, based around the three letters of NED's name: Never Give Up, Encourage Others, and Do Your Best. Promoting positive attitudes, better behaviour and academic achievement, by the end of the show, all students could recite these phrases, and knew exactly what they meant. They were also inspired to live lives to become champions.

"The bit with the balloons is always great," said some Year 3's. "The 'Brain Fireworks' is just so funny!" For more information on the NED show, visit
