MacKillop Family Services: 'Paws 4 Kids

For some children, school isn’t always an easy place to be, this is especially true for many children living in residential or foster care. They often find it hard because beyond the school gate they’re dealing with some tough issues: family violence, neglect, living out of home or social and/or emotional behaviours, which mainstream schools can find difficult to manage.

MacKillop Family Services’ specialist school in Maidstone and educational outreach programs, support hundreds of children living in Melbourne’s west to get the best education they can. One of the innovative programs they have introduced is PawPals, a canine-assisted learning program to make school and learning a fun, positive experience for kids who have struggled to engage with mainstream education.
