Everyday Heroes Lauren and Ora

Yesterday Team 8 (and the Koru Whanau) had a visit from Lauren and her guide dog puppy Ora. She talked to us about all the special things Guide Dog NZ do. 

We came to realise that guide dogs really are our everyday heroes. 
We learned:

  • Guide dog puppies can't play with balls - Dia
  • Guide dogs can go to different places - Alex
  • If they have a red coat on their back, they can go anywhere - Indi W
  • They can go on the aeroplane - Wyatt
  • They can't go to the zoo - Gabriella
  • They help people to know where they are going - Zoey A
  • Ora had a identification (ID) card - Jeremy
  • If somebody is blind, Ora can help them to walk on the road - Theo
  • They can't scratch the window - Ben

Thank you to everyone who sent in a donation for this fantastic cause. We will be forwarding the money to the foundation.
