ABOUT US

Why

Backflips?

We aim to change the social culture within Australian schools, and build students who are resilient, empathetic, with strong communication skills. To do this we need to present the information in a way that they will understand, respect, and want to implement.

Parkour & acrobatics is one of the fastest growing trends in students of all ages. Backflips Against Bullying utilises this to engage the students, and addresses  using a medium they are already engaged in. We address bullying on a social level, addressing all perspectives, to help students who exhibit bullying behaviour, as well as those who suffer at its hands.

When students are engaged, they learn. So we engage them with Backflips, and we teach them about Bullying.

OUR BELIEF

Children create their understanding of the world out first from their experiences, and throughout their lives this remains the most effective and convincing way they learn.

OUR MISSION

We aim to provide more than just a show; it’s an experience, that will empower children to make a positive difference in their lives, and the lives of others around them.
