Classroom visits provide students with an opportunity to get up-close with AWLQ animals, learn about caring for their needs and how they can help reduce the number of unwanted animals in their community.
An Education Officer will come to the classroom with specially trained animals and is able to visit multiple classes within the one school in the one day. The presentation usually runs for 30-40 minutes and is structured according to the learning level of the students, in consultation with the classroom teacher.
AWLQ offer classroom visits to all state and non-government schools in the Gold Coast, Logan and South Brisbane areas. We are also available to pre-schools and kindergartens as well as libraries and home-schooling groups. COST: AWLQ offers classroom visits as a service to the community free of charge, however, in order to assist the AWLQ in covering the costs of the visit, we kindly ask for a gold coin donation per child. We also welcome donations of dog and cat food for our refuge animals. A ‘Pet Food Drive’ is often a good way to get students excited about a visit from the AWLQ and encourages them to think about the animals in need. For further information or to book a visit, please contact the Education Division.
