The Health Inspection Office has been conducting its "Animal Protection and Rabies Prevention Touring School Education and Awareness Activity" for more than a decade. We adjust the activity's awareness content in collaboration with animal protection groups each year, and hope to use interesting methods in keeping with the times to transmit correct, positive animal protection knowledge, while ensuring that students learn how to coexist in harmony with other living things.
The 2021 touring campus awareness sessions kicked off at the Manhattan Kindergarten in the city's Daya District. At this session, speakers from the Pet-friendly Environment Development Association—a new addition to the awareness lineup—brought the furry teaching assistant Shiba Inu Xiaomi to help teach the kids about animal protection. At the session, the speakers used easily-understood, fun content in conjunction with their charming furry teaching assistant to win the kids' hearts. Close to 100 children listened raptly throughout the 50-minute session, and paid close attention to learning how to become a responsible pet owner. Through their interaction with the furry teaching assistant, the kids gradually learned that getting along with animals must be based on mutual respect and awareness of each other's emotions. Understanding animals' habits and body language, and thinking about what you would do in their situation, is the first step in establishing effective interaction with animals. In addition, a good owners must also pay close attention to their own behavior and that of their pets, and strive to avoid behavior that will affect others and cause antipathy and misunderstandings. Via animal protection awareness, the Health Inspection Office hopes to deeply instill the concepts of pet owners' responsibilities and respect for life in young children's minds. We look forward to the kids using what they learned at this session to build bridges of friendship with animals, and helping to gradually eliminate conflicts between humans and animals.
The Health Inspection Office's "Animal Protection and Rabies Prevention Touring School Education and Awareness Activity" targets all students from kindergarten to university. The activity uses methods tailored to different age groups to ensure that students thoroughly absorb animal protection concepts. Thanks to their interesting and practical content, each year many schools compete to sign up to host a session. The 120 openings for this year have now almost all been taken, so interested schools are advised to quickly take this final opportunity to sign up!
