Our Story of Change
Five year 7 students at Hastings Secondary College have developed a Therapy Dog Pilot Program at the Westport Campus in Port Macquarie to improve student wellbeing. Based on their fantastic work, the team has recently been selected as the Design for Change Australia ambassador team. This means that one mentor and two students have been offered the opportunity to represent Australia at the 'Be the Change' conference in Taiwan (flights, accommodation, and meals inclusive)!
Let's get all FIVE of our young superheroes to Taiwan to share and learn at this amazing global celebration of change!
