Ms Finn arranged for the three Infant classes to visit the ISPCA in Keena, Co. Longford last week. Ms O’Connell and her Junior Infants went there last Thursday 30th March. Some of the Senior Infants went with them. Mrs Fitzgerald went too. Kelly was their tour guide. The rest of the Senior Infants went there on Friday 31st March. Ms Finn, Ms Egan and Ms Browne went with these children. Denise was their tour guide.
All of the children really enjoyed the trip. Kelly and Denise told the children about the appalling conditions the animals were in when they first came to the centre. The animals sometimes have to be treated for eye infections and injuries. Most of the animals are suffering from starvation when they come in. All of the animals get regular check ups and exercise at the centre .
The children got to hold two lovely puppies. These pups are called Blue and Paddington. Ms Finn nearly brought them home! Families are allowed to come to the ISPCA and bring a dog for a walk. Thanks to the parents for sending in the 6 euro for the trip. This covered the cost of the bus and a small donation for the ISPCA. Take a look at our movie!
