Newton House at the Peele Community College at Long Sutton now has a new mascot – and he does vital work.
Medical Detection Dogs was the house charity of the year, and the aim was to raise £2,000, enabling the school to sponsor a puppy to be fully trained as an assistance alert dog.
The form succeeded in their challenge and their sponsor puppy will be called Newton.
Head of Newton House Mrs Earl presented a cheque for £2,107.80 to Mrs Claire Moon and her Medical Detection Dog Magic at an evening celebration assembly where the students’ successes and achievements were also acknowledged.
A video was shown of the charity work students have been involved with during the year and the audience heard about the tremendous work the Medical Detection charity does.
A school spokesman said: “Newton House looks forward to receiving various updates, visits and photographs of their new puppy Newton over the next year.”
