Waroona District High School is proud to be associated with the Story Dogs programme. This nationally accredited program organises trained dogs and their handlers to come into the school each week to support reluctant readers in the early primary years. Research has shown that the presence of a dog within a non-judgemental environment encourages student engagement with books and improves literacy.
Waroona District High School is fortunate to have three teams currently servicing the school. Mr John Clare and his dog Frankie (a 5 year old female Cavalier King Charles), Ms Katherine Dowsett and her dog Gia (a 2 year old female Labrador cross) and Pat Kings and her dog Indi (a 3 year old female Border Collie) support students from Year 1 to Year 3.
