Kids learn the value of animals
STUDENTS at Whitsunday Christian College had the opportunity to take part in a RSPCA educational program last week.
The program helps deliver messages on responsible animal care and it was lots of fun for all students who enjoyed their visit.
The RSPCA Educational Mobile RSPCA Educational Mobile Unit (EMU) is RSPCA Queensland’s flagship Education Mobile Unit – a state-of-the-art classroom on wheels filled with interactive animal welfare education.
EMU includes distinct learning modules that allow students to explore the responsibilities of pet ownership, the lives of farm animals, and our relationship with Australia’s unique wildlife.
Students had the opportunity to take part in a number of different activities.
The dress up and vet corner was the most popular among the Foundation Phase classes.
Students learnt about purchasing food approved under the RSPC Approved Farming Scheme, how animals can see and how much it costs to maintain animals per year.
EMU’s lessons have become a much sought after experience for schools as it offers an impressive, high-profile community education program, with the aim of delivering messages on responsible animal care for the future generations.
During its lifetime, EMU has visited over 400,000 students and is now a highly-anticipated visitor to schools, councils and community groups along the east coast of Australia.
