Year 8 Charities

Students wanted to donate money to a charity for animals and have decided on the Dogs Trust as their chosen charity. Students debated which dog to adopt within their form groups and then took this to a meeting of the student council to agree upon a dog!

Year 8: Samuel from Bridgend

Age: 3 Yearspx235samuelp51

Gender: I’m a boy

Breed: Springer Spaniel

About me: I’m a friendly boy with a super waggy tail. Tennis balls are my favourite and I always take one with me when I go on my walkies – they’re sooo much fun!

Update December 2013: It might be pretty cold outside but I still love my trips to the beach. My carer, Kim, brings her own dogs along, Maddie and Flea, and we have heaps of fun. I always make sure to take my tennis ball, so we can play ‘fetch’ on the sand! Winter is one of my favourite seasons because I love the snow – and like the sand it’s great fun to run in too! As a true Springer, I’m always sniffing the ground for toys, but when the grass is covered in sparkling white snow, my toys are a lot more difficult to find.
