Thank you to Doreen Sims from Guide Dogs who spoke to the children during an assembly in April. The children learnt about the amazing things guide dogs are taught to do to improve the lives of their owners.
Doreen’s dog, Dougie, impressed the children with his ability to follow commands and stay focused and calm in spite of the 570 children in front of him!

A team from the Samaritans visited the school in November. They spoke to the children in an assembly about how important it is to be emotionally healthy as well as physically.
The children shared their ideas about who they would speak to both in school and at home.
Everyone received a card to take home reminding them of the people they can share any worries with.
In October Hamstel Junior School welcomed a nurse from the flu vaccination team to a whole school assembly. The children learned how a flu vaccination works and were given some advice about preventing and avoiding the flu.
