The ongoing theme for Grade KI students of Orchids The International School-Masjid Bunder, a famous school near Tardeo, was on the topic ‘Animals’. The students are aware about pets, farm and wild animals, their habitats, eating habits etc. As a culmination to the theme, the students were taken to a pet shelter on 23rd September 2015. Students were able to gain an insight about the number of stray animals who are in need of shelter, treatment for sicknesses and who need to be cared for. The veterinary doctor at the shelter also showed the students those animals that had been operated for their ailments. The objective of the visit was to create an awareness among the students on how to care for pet animals. Students understood the need to be sensitive to the needs of these animals and that animals are friendly if we treat them properly.
