Bald Blair PAWs Up Visit

13th Jun 2023

The students at Bald Blair Public School have been enjoying fortnightly visits from the Back Track Paws Up team. This is a fantastic program that gives students the opportunity to build resilience and improve their wellbeing. Students do an emotional check in at the beginning of every session, where they are asked to reflect on their feelings for the day.
Paws Up stands for Positivity and Wellbeing Skills Under Pressure. Back Track’s dogs are a huge hit with the children. The dogs provide a safe ear for the students to read and share stories. This program helps to build student confidence with their reading and provides the opportunity to socially connect with the animals and their peers. We feel lucky to be a part of such a great initiative.
