In this upcoming school holiday period, the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA) Victoria Education is providing a unique insight into its animal care operations with an online learning program.

The program is designed for children between seven and 14 years of age and is jam-packed with exclusive content, including a live virtual excursion to meet the animals of the RSPCA Victoria barn.

The blended learning model is an adaptation of RSPCA Victoria’s regular school holiday program, which typically sees over 1,000 young animal lovers visit the Education Centre every year. While COVID-19 restrictions are still in place, the online program provides students with an engaging experience from home.

Sally Meakin, RSPCA Victoria Learning and Education manager, said that the program aims to educate students about good animal welfare with fun activities and videos and through meeting some of the education animals that make up the RSPCA Victoria family.

RSPCA Victoria’s online school holiday program is free and will include a virtual barn excursion of the RSPCA along with activities and craft guides to  keep kids busy.
