Guide Dogs for the Blind

31st January 2024
On Wednesday 31st January we had a visit from the Guide Dogs for the Blind charity. John and his wife brought 2 dogs called Gareth and Hayley into school and talked to us about how dogs can help people who are blind or visually impaired. The whole school went into the hall and listened to John's different stories and experiences of being involved with the charity and we found out about the training each puppy has before moving onto continue their career helping people in their everyday lives. The children had the opportunity to ask questions and if they wanted to were able to stroke the dogs. It was a great experience and everyone learned a lot from the afternoon.
