Blue Cross

On Thursday 28th April Louis Crump from the Blue Cross Education Department hosted a whole school assembly on Dog Safety and talks for Class 2 and 3 on ‘Pets and Wellbeing’, and ‘What Pets Need’. Mrs Hall brought Twig the school therapy dog to join in the demonstrations to give the children some hands on experience.  Lois  answered questions that the children had about their pets and how to look after them. The children really enjoyed speaking with Lois about socialising with dogs. They came away with some great tips on recognising dog behaviour and even those children who started the session concerned about dogs left feeling more confident about them.  The Blue Cross are a charity who help to educate people about animal welfare, provide pet hospitals, bereavement counselling and educational talks in schools, amongst other activities.
