Welcome to the Scottish SPCA’s new education programme – Animal WISE!

We believe our support to every person in Scotland should extend further than our annual workshops. We want to support people’s health and wellbeing,
enhance young people’s literacy and numeracy skills, introduce innovative ways to engage with STEM and inspire future career pathways.

In order to meet with restrictions, we have adapted our popular workshops for primary and secondary pupils to an outdoor setting so we can continue to visit and engage with your school without being in the classroom.

As we cannot visit you all just now please take a look at our 'virtual lesson' where you can watch a video and then complete our mini activity pack.

Download your mini activity pack

If you need help reading any of these documents, you can ask your computer to read them aloud to you. Download Adobe Reader from the App Store or Google. Once installed, open the “View” menu, point to the “Read Out Loud” submenu, and then click the “Activate Read Out Loud” command. You can also hit Ctrl+Shift+Y to activate this feature.
