El Gregoe

Pure Magic! During May this year, nine schools in the Wairoa and Napier area were lucky enough to have Elg Gregoe, an award-winning New Zealand magician, visit their schools as part of the Social Worker in Schools (SWiS) Preventative Programme arranged by Birthright Hawke’s Bay Child & Family Care. Elgregoe’s show teaches key values that educate students about how to treat others and has a strong emphasis on cutting down bullying in New Zealand schools. Using fast paced tricks, puppets, ventriloquism, music, song, stories and amazing props (including live parrots!), those important messages are conveyed to the children through a fun, fast-paced show. "You’ve Got the Power" is a show that aims to promote great attitudes and get kids thinking about achieving and living in a bully free environment. Sharon Allan, Birthright HB Child & Family Care Practice Manager commented “It’s a show that never fails to entertain the children and get a really important message across to our primary and intermediate school children. We have been using Elgregoe for about 5 years now and wish to thank the Ministry of Social Development for helping to fund this initiative. It really is Magic”
