Taiwan: School Mourns Passing Of Beloved Campus Pet Dog

Posted on

Kele, a stray shiba inu who turned up in a classroom on a chilly day over a decade ago and quickly became beloved by students and teachers at Ansi Junior High School in New Taipei City, passed away this weekend.

After learning about Kele’s death on Saturday due to an illness, Principal Chih Hsu-tai expressed his condolences to the Sansia District community.

Even during her recent sickness, “Kele set an example of how to face death and how to love the people close to you,” Chih said, adding that pupils are arranging a memorial service for her once school resumes.

The school says that Kele became a campus dog in March 2011 when authorities couldn’t find her a home to adopt during a cold spell.

Kele has been a student at the institution for more than 11 years, during which time she has earned the title of “No. 1 campus dog in the country” from the Executive Yuan and has been the focus of a Facebook fan page that has more than 23,000 followers, according to the report.

One of Chiang Tao’s fondest recollections of campus dog Kele is the day she heroically chased away three stray water buffalo from the school grounds.

According to Chiang, Kele taught pupils essential life lessons on a more consistent basis, like the fact that people “aren’t so high and mighty.” She also offered them emotional comfort on a more frequent basis.

According to Chiang, Kele died away quietly on Saturday night. She had been experiencing a steady decline in her condition since she was diagnosed with an incurable brain tumor in April.

According to Chiang, when Kele passed away, she was cremated on Monday and then given a tree burial at a pet cemetery. The tree burial included a Buddhist funeral ritual as well as a potted basil plant that was placed on top of her tomb.

Sniffer Dogs Are Being Brought To A School To Help Avoid Drug Problems

Posted on

A school in the county of Dorset has informed the parents of its pupils that the school will “periodically” inspect the children’s bags and will also bring in a drug-sniffing dog in an effort to “protect them from the dangers of illicit drugs.”

Queen Elizabeth’s School in Wimborne sent out a letter notifying parents that they had decided to close because of “county lines” stories that had been making headlines.  Students at Queen Elizabeth’s School are taught about the hazards of illegal substances in assemblies and via the Curriculum for Life programs, according to a letter they received from the school’s principal.

One day during the week of July 4, 2022, a drugs-sniffing canine will be on hand in light of recent news reports regarding ‘county lines.’  A number of schools in the area have also adopted this method.

A secure, drug-free, and healthy environment for all kids to study and grow is a priority and represents the community’s values and expectations, according to the letter.  “It is with these goals in mind that we are undertaking this procedure.” “Your son or daughter will have had this explained to them by their tutor prior to the visit to prepare them.”

According to the letter, the sniffer dog would be accompanied by a “expert handler” and a police officer.  The dog will visit every class and hang out in common areas like the library and front desk.

In the event of any issue, the dog will alert his handler. The student’s parents would then be notified if more inquiry was necessary.

Every few weeks, we’ll also be conducting bag searches to verify that no prohibited drugs like cigarettes and vape pens are in the school’s possession.

It comes as the school has built a new barrier, with one parent asking if the “huge security fences” and sniffer dogs were essential.

Katie Boyes, headteacher of QE School, said: “It is important to state that the use of a dog is not in reaction to an incident and there is not a drug problem at QE School.” “We want to make the school as safe as possible and like other local schools decided to invite a sniffer dog in with its handler. “It is entirely a preventative measure and is designed to help reassure parents that we are doing everything to ensure their children are safe. “The visit of the dog for a few hours is allied to our programme of work that educates the children about the dangers of drugs.

Schools are required to have a fence of this height in order to comply with safeguarding regulations.

This Dog Comes Here Every Day And Helps Kindergarten Kids Safely Cross The Street

Posted on

A stray dog has appointed itself the job of helping young school children cross the road safely – and even barks furiously at cars which ignore the crossing.

The animal then patrols up and down the pedestrian crossing, putting itself between the traffic and the children to keep them safe.

When a waiting van begins to edge forward, the dog begins to bark and stands in front of it so it can’t continue, waiting for every child to have completely cleared the crossing before stepping aside.

The footage was captured in the city of Batumi, Georgia, by Bega Tsinadze who said the dog lives in the neighbourhood and is affectionately known as Kursha, as reported by ITV.

It’s had more than four million views on Twitter since it was shared by positive news account Goodable, with the caption: “In Georgia, there’s a stray dog who’s made it his job to protect this kindergarten class — so they can cross the street safely.

“He shows up for work everyday. He even cusses out the cars that don’t stop.”

It racked up thousands of likes and retweets, as one commented to say: “Omg how can this wonderful dog not have a home.”
