Dogs used to help with children literacy illawarra council says
The use of dogs to teach children about health issues has been outlawed by a council in west Sydney.
Wests Tigers chief executive officer of social and community development Mike O’Keefe says this is an effort to reduce the number of children affected.
«We have a number of initiatives out there aro샌즈 카지노und health issues,» he said.
«One of our main initiatives for children in our schools is learning about cancer and the risk that it poses, or any of the potential complications it can pose to the person, and that they should use and know how to use the most up-to-date information, or용인출장마사지 to read the latest medical literature and talk to people about that and to understand those topics in a way they may not be able to.
«It’s just a very, very common approach, and when we see something like this or one of our other initiatives involving children in our schools, we take that very seriously.
«It’s to improve that learning experience in the child’s head.
«That’s something that안산출장샵 has been going on in our schools, but it’s also also an important part of the wider strategy that we want to support in our health and education programmes.»
Councillor James Tod says this is one of the toughest decisions he has had to make.
«It’s a very tough one because if you’re talking about a decision which would be a major economic decision and is going to affect so many of our residents, if I were to make decisions like that, it would be, I think, the last one in my life, and I’d probably go out on a limb to call it a life-changing decision,» he said.
«To go through with it would mean that the children from my inner city neighbourhood wouldn’t have any other option but to walk their dogs with me today.»
