One of our vision aims is to ‘open your mind’, meaning to try new things and experiences. This has been true of Maggie, our school dog, as this week I have introduced her to new situations and ways to meet those children who would like to. During a wet play on Tuesday I took her into the entrance of each class where children could say hello and give her a stroke. She coped perfectly and enjoyed the attention! Today, she joined assembly for the first time and helped to give out our Maggie - Vision and Value certificate. She remained calm and focussed and everyone even sang happy birthday to her, albeit in a whisper, as she is 2 today!
