The 2016 / 2017 school year has come to an end but the Kids on The Block are now already in full swing ~ with a busy few months ahead. Between summer-schools and city day-camps, there is still some time for our puppeteers to breathe, wipe their weary brows, rest their arms, kick back with an ice-cream cone and reflect upon what an incredible year 2017 has been so far!
During the winter/spring season we presented at 15 different schools and 7 diverse community locations (including pre-schools, places of worship and festivals) reaching an estimated 2800 people!
Popular topics since January were Teasing, Bullying and Behavioural Disabilities. Our old favourite, Renaldo Rodriguez, was also present at almost every show to discuss the importance of positive attitudes and answer questions about his blindness.
KOB would like take the time to thank our volunteers Heather MacDonald and Liz Reuss who brought their smiles and skills to so many shows over the past year. We look forward to seeing Heather back on stage next season and wish Liz all the best as she moves on to new volunteer activities after 10 years as a dedicated Kids on The Block puppeteer.
