Our Furry and Feathered Friends
Here at Saighton we have a school dog called Tilly, who visits with Mrs Smith every Tuesday and Thursday.
We have recently welcomed rescued battery hens, Elizabeth, Henrietta and Blossom to Saighton School. The school is delighted to be a pilot school for a special project with CEFAW - the Christian Ethics of Farmed Animal Welfare - which is headed up by Professor David Clough, Chair in Theology and Applied Sciences at the Univeristy of Aberdeen. Professor David introduced us to the idea of 'creaturely flourishing' and we were immediately intrigued as this links so well with our own school vision of 'Flourishing together. Life in all its fullness' (John 10:10).
Pupils are the school are designated as 'Hen Pals' and are responsible for the daily care of the three hens.
