ULSAN, Jan. 8 (Korea Bizwire) — The Ulsan Metropolitan Office of Education said Tuesday it will expand and operate its “Visiting Animal Love Education” for elementary school students this year.
Last year, the municipal education office received applications from elementary schools that wanted such education and held 675 education sessions at 88 schools and for 178 grades.
This year, it will expand its education to 150 schools, 300 classes and 1,200 sessions.
Animal love education helps children to feel the importance of life with their pets and develop their social skills by developing sensitivity.
Instructors from animal-related organizations will take their helper animals to each classroom to teach and educate students how to communicate properly and listen to heartbeats with a stethoscope.
To that end, students will learn and understand the reality of abandoned animals and pet etiquette.
In addition, students will be educated about the reality of abandoned animals, the registration system for animals, and the value of co-existence.
The education office explained that only animals that are vaccinated against the common infectious diseases participate in the education sessions.
In addition, students who are allergic to animals or are afraid of animals are allowed to observe freely, paying attention to safety and hygiene.
