Master Otto Arrives at Bosbury!
It may be nearly the end of another highly unusual school year, but, even with barely four weeks to go, we were still able to welcome a new member of staff (or should that be new pupil...?) to our lovely school this week. Bosbury families, we proudly present to you Mr. Wilf's adorable new apprentice, Master Otto!
Master Otto will be spending the next few weeks being trained by Mr. Wilf and Mrs. Christopherson to become Bosbury School's new Thrive therapy dog, helping to support our pupils' mental health and well-being in our lovely Rainbow Room, at a time when emotional support for children is more important than ever after the huge changes and lockdowns we have all experienced over the last eighteen months and the continuing shadow which COVID-19 will undoubtedly continue to cast over the coming months and possibly years.
As you can see, Master Otto is already settling in very well indeed and feeling extremely comfortable at Bosbury, receiving lots of fuss off children and adults alike, having great fun with the children on the field at break times, and already picking up Mr. Wilf's trademark skill of hoovering up any loose bits of food left on the floor of the school hall after lunchtimes!
Good luck to Master Otto during his intense period of staff training over the coming weeks at Bosbury as he looks to take over the mantle of Bosbury School Thrive Approach Deputy Co-ordinator from Mr. Wilf, although we all hope that our senior schnauzer is able to continue his great work in our school for a good while yet before his well-earned retirement.
Hopefully, Master Otto will also quickly adopt Mr. Wilf's love of listening to our children read too!
