This week in WAVE Scotch Oakburn College Penquite campus once again held a much enjoyed Blessing of the Animals Chapel Service. The staff and students prepared for this service by donating goods and contributing photos of their beloved pets for a blessing montage that was played during the service. Reverend Chris Duxbury presided over the proceedings offering a special blessing to the animals present assisted by Mr Rohan Pryor. Dr Andrew Byrne from the RSPCA and Rachel Beech from Just cats spoke about their work and the need for us all to be responsible and involved in animal welfare issues.

The Combined Choir sang a beautiful rendition of All things Bright and Beautiful as all the animals present displayed their best behaviours.

Our heartfelt thanks to all families who donated and a special thank you to Rev Duxbury for her thoughtful blessings and presence at our unique and special event.
