Last week Sydney Magician and Illusionist Jack Daniels was invited to attend the students showcase and hand out of awards at Springwood High School who have been running Project Magic with Fusion Australia.
The team at Fusion Australia have been doing an incredible things with Project Magic. They have been using the program in high schools to assist kids with social and self esteem issues with great success.
To be invited to this event was a wonderful experience even for myself. I hadn't seen the student before so it was hard to believe what they were like before they started with the program. Some used to be shy, some used to have self esteem issues and some got in trouble a lot from what I heard. However after talking to the teachers who were present at the event, I found out that the students had improved dramitaicly. The teachers themselves where amazed by the power of this program.
Each student did a very small performance for the audience and were given a award certificate on a job well done.
The program has been running incredibly well with 2 other local magicians one of them being my mentor, Sydney Show Boat Magician Rod Junor and the other being one of our stage hands Kieran Taylor. An up and coming young magician with a bright future ahead of him.
I was very proud of what they have done with Fusion Australia and Project Magic. A massive congratulations to them and the student who have taken part in the magic program.
It was a fun week when we received a phone call from one of the biggest names in magic wanting some assistance from us while he was overseas. Lots of early morning long phone calls dealing with Australian Customs, paperworks, and driving around in the crazy weather we recently had in Sydney. But non the less the mission was accomplished with great results from a great team! Thanks to all who helped us out this weekend.
