Canine Partners Assembly

Alison, a volunteer from Canine Partners came into school to deliver an assembly on how assistance dogs can help people with a range of disabilities. As a school, we have been looking at how assistance dogs can positively change lives for some disabled people from wheelchair users to people with PTSD.

Yana can open cupboards, fetch medication and even retrieve a dropped credit card! AMAZING!
