School Initiative a Great Success!
Pupils from Highcliffe School wrapped up warm on a frosty morning earlier this year when they visited us to learn about animal welfare as part of their GCSE ICT project.
Students were given a tour of the Sanctuary and were able to spend time cuddling the cats whilst they learnt about cat care and the rehoming process. Staff from the charity’s Lincoln Farm Rescue and Rehoming Centre for Dogs brought two of the rescue dogs over for the students to meet and gave a talk about dog rescue and rehoming.
The day was part of our initiative this year to promote responsible pet awareness within the local community.
Jill Burden, Teacher at Highcliffe School said: “We thank all the staff at Margaret Green for a really super day at the Rescue Centre, the visit will be so beneficial for their GCSE ICT coursework. The students all gave really positive feedback on what a great day they had.”
Pupils at the school were given the chance to send in their feedback after the trip. Danny said “Thank you ever so much for the great day out to Margret Greens Animal Sanctuary. It was a fun day out with the class. My favourite bit of the day was when one of the dogs came and fell asleep under my legs for around 30mins. Hope to visit again” and Sophie remarked “Thank you for a great day out at the animal centre, it will really help with my GCSE project!”.
We are celebrating our 50th anniversary this year and we are keen to encourage as many schools as possible to come to the sanctuary to learn first-hand about the welfare of animals.
