THUNDER BAY -- Students at St. James Public School were treated to a puppet show with a message Thursday morning.
The students were learning about the struggles of people fighting cancer and what they deal with on a daily basis, and how the children can offer support.
Camp Quality performers have put on 82 puppet shows across Northwestern Ontario since creating the production. It revolves around four characters, who are each dealing with separate types of cancer.
The show teaches children how to support someone who is dealing with a major illness, and that it's important to show compassion and respect to those who need it.
St James Principal, Marla Poulin, says it's a good message for children at this early age.
The puppet show has been performed in front of more than 20,000 children since it was introduced.
