11th May 2017

Please say a big welcome to Cilla – our School Therapy Dog! Cilla is an adorable black Pug; she has a wonderfully calm, placid nature and loves attention from adults and pupils alike.

We have begun to introduce Cilla to the school environment as a Therapy Dog. That is, her purpose is to enhance pupils’ emotional well-being, learning experience and day-to-day life at South Shore Academy. Cilla has recently become fully qualified to fulfil this role… with a certificate to prove it!

We are hoping to involve Cilla more closely in South Shore Academy’s pupils’ learning experiences.
