Today, Deirdre from Dogs Trust visited the school with her rescue dogs Cónán and Sadbh. Deirdre spoke to the children about safety around dogs as part of a workshop presented in each classroom. Deirdre emphasised the importance of sensible and appropriate behaviour around the dogs. Deirdre showed the children photographs of dogs in different situations and elicited from the children information with regard to when it is safe and unsafe to approach dogs.
The children were also taught the W.A.L.T. principle:
W – Walk towards the dog.
A – Ask the owner if you are allowed to pat the dog.
L – Let the dog smell your closed fist.
T – Touch – Ask the owner where the dog likes to be touched.
All the children received Certificates from Deirdre before she left for participating in the workshop.

To coincide with Safer Internet Day 2013, 4th & 5th Class typed up their own poems.
The poems all touch on the negative impact that Cyber Bullying can have on people.

The pupils in 1st to 3rd class were very busy in Ms. Lahart’s room today. They produced a lovely jigsaw piece during an SPHE lesson on the theme of “We all fit in”. Well done everybody.

Hi Dualla NS, this is Deirdre from Dogs Trust! Sadhbh, Cónán and I would like to say thank you so much for inviting us to your school. We had a lovely day and we’re so impressed with all the different doggy facts you learned from the workshop! We love the photos too, Cónán thinks he looks extra handsome 🙂 We hope to visit you again in the future.
