This week, our new Riccall Roundup Reporters have written about two sets of visitors that we’ve had in school, this week!

She gave the information about how the trained dogs respond to loud noises (like cars and danger around the blind person.) They wore glasses so they could see what it is like for a blind or partially blind person-who needs a guide dog.
