The Camp Quality Primary School Education Program has been invited to perform at Albany Rise Primary School on:
Monday 17th August
12:30 Grade 3 -6 (45min)
2:30 Prep – 2 (45 min)
Parents/Carers are most welcome to attend.
Camp Quality is a children’s family cancer charity. Our purpose is to making a better life for every child living with cancer in Australia.
For over 25 years our Education Program, the Camp Quality Puppets, have transformed thousands of schools by helping children and teachers learn how to create a supportive school community for children affected by cancer, whether they are living with cancer themselves or have a family member living with cancer.
The program consists of a live, educational performance focusing on cancer education, optimism, friendship and tolerance.
There is no charge to the school or the students.
Following the performance, students are encouraged to ask questions and share their concerns. While we are able to answer most of their questions and concerns, we provide teachers with resources to supplement the performance and aid classroom discussion.
Over 4 million children have seen our puppets since the program began. We trust that your child will benefit from the positive messages promoted in our performance.
If you’d like more information about the program, please visit our website or contact Elleni Karagiannidis on 03 9329 8660.

Nationally Consistent Collection of Data on School Students with Disability
All schools in Australia, including Independent and Catholic schools, will participate in the Nationally Consistent Collection of Data on School Students with Disability this year.
The Data Collection is an annual count of the number of students with disability receiving educational adjustments to support their participation in education on the same basis as students without disability. All education agencies are now required under the Australian Education Regulation 2013 to provide information on a student’s level of education, disability and level of adjustment to the Australian Government Department of Education and Training.* Data will continue to be de-identified prior to its transfer and no student’s identity will be provided to the Australian Government Department of Education and Training.
The collection of this information from states and territories will inform future policy and program planning in relation to students with disability.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Belinda Jones or Judy Drew on 9547 1146 or the Victorian Department of Education and Training Data Collection Hotline on (03) 9651 3621. For questions after 7 August 2015, please call the Australian Government Department of Education and Training on 1300 566 046.
