AWARE: free education resources for students and teachers

We believe education is the key to creating lasting change. Our main aim is to help young people develop responsible and caring behaviour toward animals, preventing animal cruelty and neglect in the long-term.

That’s why RSPCA South Australia has developed a series of resources aimed at educating young people about animal welfare.

RSPCA AWARE (Animal Wellbeing: Awareness, Responsibility and Education) provides resources for educators, students and parents. These resources help young people develop knowledge, skills and understandings around improving the welfare of all animals, be they companions, farmed or wild animals.

Best of all, the program is free!

AWARE Kids’ Education Portal

The RSPCA AWARE Kids Education Portal is a unique online education resource.

The portal has been designed to support children’s learning about animal welfare and responsibility towards animals, whilst developing children’s respect, understanding and compassion for all living creatures

​RSPCA AWARE Teachers’ Portal

Our RSPCA AWARE Teachers’ Portal is designed for primary school teachers.

The portal provides innovative teaching and learning resources on animal welfare that are aligned with the Australian Curriculum and fit easily into classroom programmes.
