We are very excited to be taking part in the Pets as Therapy scheme 'Read2Dogs.' Each week, Alfie the dog and his owner Jacky are visiting our school to hear children read. Alfie is almost 4 years old and is a Schnauzer. He is very calm and very rarely sheds his fur. He has lots of experience visiting nursing homes and is very excited to be starting school at St Nicolas and St Mary's! Please say hello to Jacky and Alfie if you see them around the school and make them feel welcome. Don't forget to ask Jacky first if you would like to stroke Alfie. If you have any questions about Read2Dogs please contact Mrs Westcott.
