Paw and order was the theme of an assembly held at St Ninian’s Lower School for year 7 (11 to 12 year olds) students last week.
The police dog unit visited the school at Bemahague to speak about its role.
In addition, Allie Brophy who delivers a project to help youngsters understand empathy towards animals, spoke about kindness, awareness and responsibility to animals, particularly dogs.
The students were presented with a booklet full of advice and tips, sponsored by Animals in Distress.
Allie relies on sponsors and donations to print the booklets, which are then presented for free.
The students have also been invited to design a poster or collage for the dog bins in the area.
