Schools and teachers
If you work in a school, at some stage you will probably need to support students, families and colleagues affected by cancer. A cancer diagnosis has a ripple effect throughout the school community and calls for a sensitive, well-informed response from staff.
Cancer Council offers a range of resources to help you manage the issues raised by cancer in your school.
