'Unique' free magic lessons for Oldham Schools

Date published: 18 October 2019

Magic Skills For Schools is offering free taster sessions for schools across Oldham, allowing them to have an insight into the highly-acclaimed programme.

Established in 2008, around 1,000 children from more than 30 Primary Schools have taken part, many with special educational needs including autism and ADHD.
As well as boosting confidence, the magic programme develops manual dexterity, memory and reasoning, and is great for speech, language and communication skills.

Robert Newgrosh told the Oldham Evening Chronicle " It's used as a developmental tool to boost confridence, self esteem and social skills, so the magic is developing areas the curriclum aren't trying to get to.

"This makes it unique."
