Mabel – our very own school therapy dog
At Grange Community Nursery and Primary School, we are lucky enough to have a four-legged member of staff who plays key role in helping our pupils. Mabel is a Cockerpoo who is an invaluable member of our team. Her work at school is varied and Mabel provides pupils with courage, confidence and companionship.
She is friendly and outgoing and loves to be stroked and fussed.
Pupils at the school can spend time with Mabel if they are having a difficult time or are anxious. Some children even prefer reading to Mabel rather than adult staff, it is really good to be able to read to a non-critical friend. She is there to listen to us, when we are feeling unhappy and she loves to walk with us, while we are having exercise on the school field.
Mabel is a much loved member of our school and her work here is invaluable.
