Today we were very lucky to have a visit from the SSPCA. They visited classes throughout the school and had a talk in the hall for children in P1- P3.
We all learnt the difference between the RSPCA and the SSPCA. The RSPCA work in England and Wales and the SSPCA is the organisation that covers animal welfare in Scotland.
The education officers that visited us showed us pictures of animals that their organisation had saved. It was wonderful to see photos of the animals before and after their involvement.
Throughout the sessions, discussion was encouraged and we had the chance to talk about our ideas about animal welfare and animal cruelty. It really gave us food for thought. Taking care of an animal requires a lot of hard work and dedication.
