Last week of Puppetry Residency

Today was our last day, teaching the students (Kindergarten up until year 2) at Isabella Plains Early Childhood School 'Communication through Puppetry'. Each week the students became more confident performing and talking in front of the class and excelled at puppetry techniques, that can even take some adults years to learn. Teachers often reported that they would often find their students turning everyday objects into puppet creations during their regular playtime. We had some very special moments together that I'll never forget. We're going to miss those little puppeteers!

I just want to give a big thanks to my brother, Jonathan, for his support and being an amazing assistant/photographer every single week; Liz Wallace - Isabella Plains Principal, for all her wonderful support; all the teachers for their help and assistance in the classrooms; all the students for their continuous enthusiasm and creativity; and lastly, to Krista Schmeling and the team at artsACT for the amazing opportunity.
