One of the highlights of the Grade 2 year at St Benedict School is when the learners are treated to a year-end visit by Buddy Bear. Each learner gets to choose their own puppy or kitten to build. They then give it a heart, stuff it, weigh and measure it and get a Birth Certificate issued. They also get to groom and dress their new pet.There is huge excitement amongst the learners and lots of special memories are made. The following day the Grade 2 learners have a Thanksgiving picnic where they all get to bring their new “pets” back to school for the day to share in the fun.
