Tegs is 2 years old and is training towards becoming an assistance dog. She will hopefully become fully qualified before the end of the current academic year as she builds on the intensive training she has already received.
Tegs is currently settling into school-life and all the different smells and noises this brings. She can currently be found in Mr Ferrier’s office during the day, with the hope that she will soon be put to good work supporting students taking on an important role as she will, amongst other roles, work with children who have special needs, suffer bereavement or who are upset in any way and in need of calm, comfort and space before being able to tell an adult what has upset them. This will all take place under strict supervision at certain times of the day.
Tegs will be in school on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
