Werribee Primary School would like to introduce the newest member of our community in 2020! Ted is a 14 week old Yellow Labrador who will be assisting the Wellbeing Team on selected days as part of a Helping Dog Trial this term.
A variety of animals, including dogs are becoming a worthwhile addition to schools across Australia. Children can benefit educationally and emotionally, increase their understanding of responsibility and develop empathy and nurturing skills through contact with a dog.
The Helping Dog “Ted” is owned by our Leading Teacher for Student Engagement and Wellbeing Laura Secrieru who is overseeing the Helping Dog Program.
