It was great to welcome back Canine Partners to Springfield yesterday. Year 8 were thrilled to meet Tina one of their training assistance dogs who demonstrated some of the useful tasks the Canine Partner dogs perform. We were also proud to present Canine Partners with a cheque for £250 which was raised by the school for the charity.
Canine Partners commented "We were delighted to return for our fourth annual visit to Springfield School as part of their Year 8 studies into charities. We explain the work of the charity and how the dogs are trained to help people with significant disabilities. Demo dog Tina joined us to accept a cheque of £250 as part of the fundraising by the school whose five houses also sponsor one of our puppies. Fantastic support Springfield. Thank you!"
Thank you to the Canine Partners team and Tina who gave up their time to speak to our pupils - we look forward to welcoming you back soon.
