Specialist dogs: Meet Vijay
Our therapy dogs across 3 campuses work hard to help young people be ready to learn in the classroom. In Vijay’s role as a therapy dog, he brings joy and humour to the campus everyday. He specialises in curling up at the feet of students in class making them feel safe and accepted. He also specialises in PE and supports student fitness by stealing the balls they are playing with and making them chase him. Thank you Vijay for everything that you do!
