Diabolo skills on show!

General News

Imagine a sunny afternoon on the school grounds, with boys laughing and cheering as they attempt to master the Diablo. OK - so not so sunny but the laughter could definitely be heard.

Diabolo, also known simply as Diablo, is a juggling or circus prop consisting of an axle and two cups or discs, usually made of wood or plastic. It's manipulated with a string attached to two handheld sticks. The player spins the diabolo on the string, performing various tricks and manoeuvres by moving the sticks to control its speed and direction. The boys gathered in small groups, each taking turns to demonstrate their skills and learn from one another.
