Puppet show raises cancer issues
The Camp Quality Puppet Show will visit Umina Beach Public School today (June 24).
The free puppet show is coordinated by children's charity Camp Quality.
The puppet show has been active since 1988 and raises key issues that effect children living with and recovering from cancer when they return to school.
A major aspect of the program is also providing a setting for non-cancer affected children to ask questions about the disease with emphasis on how to support their cancer-affected peers and to foster empathy in the student body.
Following the performance, students are encouraged to ask questions and share their concerns with Camp Quality staff, who will provide teachers with resources to aid in classroom discussion.
