We are pleased to welcome Ruby, our reading dog to Wavendon Gate School.
Ruby is a Border Collie and a qualified Canine Concern Therapy dog owned by Mrs Kok, our behaviour mentor. Ruby comes into school every Wednesday. She sits with the children, supporting reading in groups. Research has illustrated that this can assist with confidence and well-being.
Ruby is fully trained, insured and covered by health and safety standards. Please click here http://www.canineconcern.co.uk/ for more information.
We love this true story about Google the Reading Dog by Sandy Childs. Sadly Google is no longer alive but he has been immortalised in this moving story!
