A special visitor!

Today, Year 5, were excited to meet Dave Heyhoe. After writing remembrance poems for his dog, Treo, and attaching them to his memorial, Dave wanted to meet the children.  We loved hearing all his stories and how wonderful Treo was. We were told about how he was trained with a tennis ball and a rubber duck, as well how he helped in the war in Afghanistan. Some of us are reading Dave’s book “All about Treo”. It was so interesting to listen to their experiences and how they saved many lives. Treo was honored by receiving the Dickin Medal, which is the highest award any animal can receive whilst serving in the military.
