Bear Our School Therapy Dog


Introducing Bear as our official Therapy Dog in training!

Bear is owned by our occupational therapist, Amy v and is now well underway into learning what it takes to be a therapy dog.

Research suggests that a certified therapy dog in the school setting can improve educational outcomes, so Bear is here to help support, engage and motivate our students and staff where and when he can. Bear has been learning with the Lead The Way Institute after we received a generous grant from Bass Coast Shire Council for his training.
Once training is complete, he will be assessed, certified and ready to work with all of our students and the greater local community.

 

If you would like to opt out of this therapeutic opportunity please contact the school.
