On Thursday, 4 October, the students and teachers from all campuses celebrated World Animal Day. This day students discussed the problem of endangered animals, performed on stage and had a meeting with the Ukrainian World Animal Day Ambassadors. Many students and teachers spent the day in animal costumes.
Dnipro students also visited “Pegasus”, local animal shelter. With the help of donations from parents, students and staff, they were able to provide the animal shelter with the money and things needed by animals the most.
The aim of World Animal Day is to raise the status of animals in order to improve welfare standards around the globe. It is celebrated in different ways in every country. Through increased awareness and education, we can create a world where animals are always recognised as sensitive beings and full regard is always paid to their welfare.
