PHILOSOPHY

Sue Harris Puppets recognises:

  • Children are a culture unto themselves
  • They are characterised by their age, size, physicality and have distinctive traits
  • Within their culture, children have a variety of beliefs and values
  • Multiculturalism exists within their society they have cultural diversity
  • The cultural heritage of each student
  • The importance of equity and equality of ideas and values and their transmission
  • The importance of communication of differing points of view and those differences accepted – allowing for cultural democracy
  • The importance of the group to have self-identification, self-representation and self-determination
  • A process to be used which allows for a safe environment in which cultural expressions can be exchanged democratically.
