School welcomes companion dog, Hannah for 2018

By Stacey Mathieson, Student Services Manager

Hannah_Companion Dog 2018Our Special Education Needs (SEN) Department is very excited to announce that Broome Senior High School will be welcoming a Companion Dog, Hannah, into the school in 2018. Hannah, a Saint Bernard, will primarily spend her time in the SEN classrooms and Student Services.

Hannah’s arrival we benefit our school community in so many ways including:
• Supporting positive education initiatives by helping to reduce student and staff stress and anxiety.
• Help students to develop empathy for other living creatures by giving them a chance to interact in a positive way with Hannah.
• Help promote community service through dog or other animal rescue charity fundraisers. We will be putting up displays and promoting animal rescue and fostering as part of a community service that students and parents may like to be involved in.

We hope you are as excited as we are to welcome Hannah to Broome Senior High School.
