Circus Arts has been a fairly major initiative within the Western NSW Region of the NSW DET, originally starting out at Dubbo West Public School as early as 1991. Since then it has grown with many other schools becoming involved. I just came across this video demonstrating how to juggle, over at Sclipo.com. Further information can also be found at JugglingIsASnap.org.
