Lee Williams from the Scottish SPCA visited Elphinstone today. She held interactive workshops for P1/2 and P3-7 on the work of the Scottish SPCA to help them gain an understanding of how they can be ‘responsible animal citizens’. Lee talked about her job in helping to save animals from abuse, neglect and injury. With P3-7 Lee showed a video and discussed what we should do if we find an injured animal or bird. The advice is to not touch the animal to prevent injury to themselves or the animal, but to contact the Scottish SPCA and let their officers deal with it safely.
The pupils had opportunities to play a game in their home-team groups. Lee left the children car/ window stickers, SSPCA rulers and badge stickers.
