The group are making significant contributions to the Delta Therapy Dogs program.

The program involves dogs visiting hospitals as a form of therapy to help patients get through their time of illness or injury.

The year 10 leadership group at Brauer College is raising money to ensure the program continues at South West Healthcare. They began this work last year when they held fundraisers as part of their roles as year 9 captains.

On Tuesday, the students watched on as Delta Therapy Dogs graduate Layla and her owner Leonie Guld visited Finn Tolland who was in the pediatric ward with a fractured arm.

Student representative Ella Medley said the ongoing fundraising efforts were worthwhile.

“We are stoked, absolutely stoked, we are so proud we chose this, it’s great,” she said of the program.
