About Bingo Jack

Since 2016 Bingo Jack (John Burgess) has been touring his educational magic shows around Australia.  The responses have always been positive.

John believes children are inquisitive, tactile, love to laugh and like to participate.  Bingo Jack’s shows cater for these needs, and of course, then there’s the laughter!!

Educator’s Notes are available for each of Bingo Jack’s Shows that describe each routine and identify the teaching objectives.  Not only are these notes a great reminder for Educators, but they allow mapping against curriculum.  All the fun and laughter is with purpose and leaves a message you, the Educator, can continue to use well after Bingo has left the building!

The most common question educators ask is ‘Do you have a teaching background?’  The answer is YES!!  John has extensive vocational training experience.  He holds a Master’s Degree in Public Policy & Administration, a Bachelor’s Degree in Business (Human Resource Development) and a Diploma in Assessment and Training Systems.  For over 10 years he worked in South Australian vocational training.  Has taught extensively and managed training providers.

John has been married for 40 years, and has the joy of travelling for six months each year with his wife.  He has three grown children and two grandchildren, who test all of Pa’s magic!  John holds South Australia working with children clearances and has performed at Kindergartens and Schools across Australia.
