Do you know what our rangers do in the City of Subiaco? It’s more than you think – and the newest honorary rangers can give everyone the lowdown.
With the help of Bob the German Shepherd and the city’s experienced compliance team, the Subi Kids Crew (SKC) learned what it takes to look after the locals.
SKC members, who are between seven and eleven years of age, had an exciting afternoon with the City of Subiaco team where they learned about responsible pet ownership, being safe around animals in public spaces, using equipment and radios and parking compliance.
The Junior Rangers session taught the group about the important job that rangers do, as well as how they can be responsible community members in their day-to-day life.
The young Subiaco locals enjoyed a demonstration by city rangers and interactive activities with Bob, like scanning for his microchip and a pretend search and rescue operation, before they were each awarded with a Junior Ranger medal.
The German Shepherd is an ex-search and rescue dog, owned by Senior Ranger Charles who led the learning activity, and was a hit with the young students who couldn’t resist his friendly face.
The SKC is an opportunity for motivated children to develop their civic responsibility, teamwork and leadership skills.
There are currently vacancies in the SKC. If your child is interested in joining, apply online or call 9237 9216 for more information.
