MANDURAH Primary School will have a k9 helper after a grant from Bendigo Bank.
The grant of almost $6000 will pay for Charlie to visit the school for half a day for the rest of the year.
Charlie has been having a significant impact on students suffering from trauma.
Dogs at schools help students feel less anxious.
Teachers have reported improvements in attendance, reduced negative behaviours and a general sense of happiness and calmness.
A morning tea was held at Mandurah Primary School on Thursday to celebrate Charlie’s continued presence at the school.
Manager of corporate services Anna Fenelon said the students just “love” Charlie.
