Secondary and tertiary excursions

RSPCA Victoria’s face to face learning experiences with animals are a fantastic way for secondary and tertiary students to explore topics such as:

  • Working in the Animal Care Industry
  • Workplace Health and Safety
  • Humane Food and Ethical Consumerism
  • RSPCA and the Community

Our Burwood East site has a fully operational barn with a range of friendly farm animals for your students to meet.  The RSPCA Animal Care Centre facilitates many dogs, cats and small pets to find their forever homes.

Our interactive sessions can be tailored to suit your curriculum requirements.  Select topics that best suit your group and collaborate with our experienced educators to create a valuable excursion program.  We can host your class for 2 – 3 hours.
