Primary School Education Program - Parents
Have our puppets been to your child's school yet?
Our touring puppet show for primary schools answers difficult questions kids have about cancer. Often the effects of cancer can be confronting for young kids - when children return to school they often look very different as a result of the side effects from their treatment. This needs to be explained so kids know what the child has been through and why it’s important to support them. Importantly the puppets teach students that cancer is not contagious. The show encourages kids to be supportive of their classmate who has a mum, dad, brother or sister living with cancer – or who has cancer themselves, and reduces the likelihood of bullying, exclusion, confusion or anxiety.
Location:Puppet shows are held all over Australia
About the Primary School Education Program
There are three shows to cater for different age groups: pre-school, junior primary and upper primary so we relate to kids in their own language and themes relevant to their age.
Most importantly, the shows are jam-packed with fun, laughter and positivity.
Pre and Primary schools across Australia can book our free live show using the booking form found on our website. You can also contact one of our Family Liaison Coordinators on 1300 665 605 or send them an email about your child's school. Our performance team will then contact your child's school directly to discuss the possibility of visiting.
