Our school was privileged to host Pet First Aid & training (NZ) for a day. The information shared was pitched perfectly for our students. There was a great balance between students listening, moving and talking. The scenarios and strategies were simple, had memorable catch phrases, supported by kid friendly illustrations and linked to real life situations. All the students got an information booklet to take home to share their experience and learning with their whanau. We loved that we could meet, greet and pat this amazing dog, who did pretty cool tricks.
Linda presented an excellent assembly for our students this week. Great information and delivered in an interesting and positive way. The messages she shared with students and staff were important and user friendly!
We would be keen to have this presentation again next year – with our 2017 Year 7 Students.
Please convey our thanks to Linda, and thanks to you for visiting us and setting this up.

As a volunteer for Outreach Therapy Pets Scooby and I are regular attendees at Rutherford Primary in Te Atatu North who have a unit for Students with Asbergers (Autism).
At our last visit we had the opportunity to start using some of the tools that you have guys have developed that went down a storm. I can best summise by quoting this txt from the teacher:
“Thank you so much for today….it was awesome! The students learnt so much and are currently colouring in their pictures”
Anything that can enrich the learning environment and support the development of the students is amazing and when you see the sparkle in the eyes, get the warmth and appreciation as well as these txts it makes it all worthwhile.
Thanks for allowing me to better serve in this space!!
I just wanted to say how great I think you guys are, my 3 year old loved the talk you gave at her daycare this week about safety around dogs and hasn’t stopped talking about it. Your message really got through so thank you so much!!
