Term 5 Clown Club
What is Clowning?
"For me clowning is when I can be, understand and believe in myself, when I am truthful to my personality, where I can communicate easily to express how I feel. I have courage and feel stronger to do anything because for what humans call mistakes and failures, the clown calls play. It is through playing that learning happens and strength originates. I see things less seriously". Bianca
