RSPCA Project Connects Students to Real World Professional Practice

The Carpentry 2 class have started work designing their RSPCA Projects which is their  major  project for PDS semester 2. Students visited the RSPCA site in Burwood on the 19th of July to meet with staff (and animals) to gather ideas for projects. Students will spend the next few weeks designing, drawing and consulting with the RSPCA before starting construction of their projects. Projects this year include a goat shed, some cat pen entrance stairs, and some animal enrichment projects to make the lives of RSPCA animals a little more interesting while  being housed there. Overall, this project promotes an authentic   learning experience that allows students the opportunity to deliver projects in line with client expectations. The RSPCA project also enables students the opportunity to build partnerships with core community organisations and work toward a set of common goals as a class.
