"The "Bleep and Bloop" Puppet Show was born out of a partnership between the Health Promotion Department and Dowtcha Puppets. The aim of the puppet show was to increase awareness of the importance of good diet and physical activity in relation to heart health for the junior classes in primary schools. Overall, we feel that the aim was achieved through this media of puppetry and supported the classroom teaching in the schools.
The show has reached a large number of students and teachers in Health Promoting Schools across Cork and Kerry and the feedback has been very positive. It was the first initiative of this type for our department and we are very pleased with the outcome and responses from teachers and students."
