Therapy dogs help Clarkson Secondary School students de-stress
Clarkson Secondary School students received a friendly surprise when therapy dogs were introduced to help alleviate stress and anxiety from examinations.
"It's incredible to see peoples' demeanor and body language almost change instantly," says Principal Mary Zammit. The initiative to help students cope during examinations was made possible by a student club called Unity Project. The therapy dogs are provided by St. John's Ambulance and are free of service, available to all schools. The student club was awarded $500.00 to support health and well-being initiatives in the school.
