Therapy Dogs

PublishingPageContent
Varsity College is proud to support student health and wellbeing through the use of special staff members Luna and Violet, Therapy Canines in Training.

Luna and Violet are both young pups at the moment, but have begun their Therapy Dogs Australia training with their team mates Mrs Greig Bradley, Head of School - Inclusive Education (Secondary) and Mr Dan Marrone, Head of School (Primary).

Animal assisted therapy has been proven to reduce stress, anxiety and improve school attendance. Our two gorgeous girls are already having a marked positive impact on our students and staff from the very first day the set paw on campus.

Both Luna and Violet support students through individual and small group interventions, showcasing their gentle and intuitive natures.

All interactions with our Therapy Dogs are completely voluntary.
