Our Visit from The Guide Dog Association

Gill and Adelaide

This morning we had a visit from a lady called Gill who is blind and her guide dog Adelaide. Gill talked to the children about how Adelaide is trained and what she does to help Gill. She told the children how Adelaide has to follow certain commands to help Gill when they are out walking. Gill also showed the children different gadgets she uses to help her and they looked at some books that had braille in them.

The children listened well and were lucky enough to give Adelaide a stroke – the children were told of the importance of not interacting with a guide dog when they have their harness on due to distracting her.
