The RSPCA’s flagship Education Mobile Unit, or EMU for short, will be in the Central Highlands for five days.

THE Central Highlands Regional Council is sponsoring the RSPCA’s Education Mobile Unit, or EMU, to visit three schools with three more schools visiting EMU at the Emerald Showgrounds from May 26 to 31.

EMU is the RSPCA’s flagship and longer than seven small cars, this state-of-the-art classroom on wheels is designed to educate and excite the young and the young at heart.

Visitors who “get on board” use the latest in computer and audiovisual technology to learn about humane values and animal welfare.

“The council is very keen to work in partnership with organisations such as the RSPCA, who do such a fantastic job to educate the community and promote the best in animal care,” Mayor Peter Maguire said.

EMU will also be open to patrons of the Emerald Show on May 31 and all day on Wednesday, June 1.

“EMU is always very popular and we encourage visitors to the Emerald Show to visit this fantastic mobile stand,” Cr Maguire said.

Council will also be holding an open day with EMU for Blackwater, providing a special opportunity to see the work of the RSPCA first-hand. This will be held on Saturday, May 28, at the Blackwater Town Shopping Centre in Blain St from 9am to 2pm.
