Australian K9 Detection Unit visit


The Australian K9 Detection Unit is a privately operated company offering superior narcotics and explosive detection services to government and non-government private companies, protecting Australian citizens, local industry and the community at large.

The AKDU visited the Lorne P-12 College on Friday 20th October as part of our Health Education program to speak to the Year 9/10 students. The presentation provided an informative session with a specific focus on the dangers of drugs and alcohol.

To assist in funding this visit, and as part of the AKDU Community Incentive Program, students in Year 6-10 Food Technology classes have been busy baking a selection of biscuits and cupcakes for human consumption together with biscuits for dogs, which were sold at our K9 Cookie Stall.  The stall raised $207.55.

There was a whole school assembly  on Friday 20th October for all P-12 students to meet some of our K9 friends.

The Lorne P-12 College has formed a special relationship with the AKDU over the past 4 years and this year Simon Umbers (Year 10) completed a 2 week Work Experience placement at their property in Benalla.

I would like to thank all Year 6-10 students who have contributed to this project including the K9 Cookie Stall and the AKDU visit. A great team effort.
