Meet Our School Dogs

Research has shown many benefits to therapy and reading dogs in school settings.

At CBSC, we have introduced school dogs as a tool to support students in improving literacy, student behaviour, attendance and wellbeing.

Alongside our draft School Dogs policy, we have created a robust risk assessment to ensure the safety of all students, staff and visitors. Dogs may be used in classroom settings but will not be unsupervised at any time; notices on doors advise student’s where/when our school dogs may be present. Parents can indicate that their child should not interact with the school dogs by emailing or calling the school to inform the administration office.
