Guinea Pig Fun

‘Children who have pets or access to animals develop empathy, higher self-esteem, a positive outlook and are less lonely, restless and bored’ RSPCA Victoria. Our Year 5’s currently have the responsibility of caring for four furry female guinea pigs, Ginger, Lily, Batman and Nutmeg. During our recent novel study of ‘Charlotte’s Web’, the students were inspired to undertake learning in STEM by building their own Guinea Pig pen showing their understanding of basic animal needs, construction and collaboration.

Torquay College acknowledges the Wadawurrung people as the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we live, learn and play and recognise the resilience, strength and pride of all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities. We acknowledge the connection to land, waters and cultures of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging throughout Australia.
