A visit from Archie and Kwala

We were very lucky to have two special visitors in our class room today. Archie and Kwala are two Service Dogs who have the important job of helping children with Autism. We wrote questions and then asked them. We learned lots about Service Dogs. Our favourite facts are:

  • you can connect a child to the dog and the dog won’t let the child do anything unsafe
  • they are trained for two and a half years in Cork
  • they have an excellent sense of smell and hearing

 

The very best bit was when we petted them!

Thank you so much to Sarah (Ethan’s mum) and her friend Louise for bringing them in.

We are delighted to be participating in the kindness event to fund raise for the D.S.P.C.A. this week!
