Canine company helps Leamington students with mock exam stress

POOCH-LOVING students in Leamington recently welcomed some stress-busting four-legged friends.

Sixth-formers at The Kingsley School enjoyed some canine company from Guide Dogs to help relieve stress during mock exams.

The visit was one of many activities to support Guide Dogs, along with cake sales, fancy dress days and a charity ball all helping to raise funds.

The school also raised enough money to name a puppy, the choice of which is now being considered by students and staff.

Sixth form head Dawn Morgan said: “Knowing the positive effects that dogs can have on our own wellbeing, our proactive Sixth Form Leadership Team came up with the suggestion that we should invite the organisation into school to help raise funds and allow students and staff to benefit from interaction with the beautiful dogs.

“It was without doubt one of the most uplifting and therapeutic hours I have ever spent, and I know that I speak for everybody involved!”
