Faith Update - Autumn 2019

Faith is now three years old and knows the routines of school life very well.  She is up to date with her visits to the vet, having had her booster injection in September.  The vet was pleased that she had not put on any weight in the last 12 months. This was a surprise, as like all labradors, she loves her food very much.    

Faith continues to support learning in Year 1.  In the Autumn Term, the children learn about looking after pets as part of their Learning Challenge.  They have the opportunity to ask questions and learn about caring for a dog and enjoy the interaction.  Some children have overcome their nervousness about dogs after meeting Faith and having the opportunity to pet her.

Faith is very good at providing comfort for pupils and staff alike.  She has helped a number of children overcome their anxieties about coming into school and often has visitors at breaktime and other points in the day for additional reassurance.

Away from school, Faith loves to play with other dogs she meets in the park.  She loves water and is at her happiest when she is running through wet grass, splashing in puddles and streams or if she is very lucky, in the sea.

If you have any questions about Faith, or would like to spend some time with her, please ask Mrs Long or Mrs Quigley.
