Event description
Conducted by veterinarians, this 2-Day workshop teaches about responsible pet ownership, local wildlife, and pet emotions and behaviour.

About this event

Promoting connection, empathy and stewardship of our natural world.

Riding on children’s innate interest and curiosity about animals, this workshop allows children to develop a deep appreciation of the importance of animals in our lives and encourage them to discover the wonderful animal kingdom.

Animals play an important role in our lives. They provide food and services to people and even provide us with companionship which supports our emotional well-being. The human-animal bond is a valuable relationship and one which we hope our students will learn to respect and cherish.

Day 1

In Day One of the workshop, we bring the child on a journey to discover the rich biodiversity that surrounds us, right here in Singapore. Through activities such as role-playing and games, children will explore and discover that animals have unique needs that differ amongst species and how human actions impact animals and sometimes even threaten their existence. The workshop brings across an important message that we as humans can do our part to safeguard the animals around us, whether as a responsible pet owner or by being respectful of our natural surroundings.

Day 2

In Day Two of the workshop, we explore with our children, how animals, like humans have their own emotions. Just like humans, animals can feel happy, sad and fearful. We will learn the basic body language of dogs and cats and practice perspective-taking, followed by a basic animal interaction segment*, where our children learn about the proper way to approach and interact with a dog/cat that they are meeting for the first time.

*No live animals will be used during the workshop due to safety and animal welfare considerations. A classroom environment can be quite stressful for an animal and studies have shown that replacements, such as puppetry and animal soft toys achieve similar learning outcomes. This course is run by our veterinarians who are passionate in introducing the exciting world of animals to our children.
