The Boarding Houses have welcomed a new Guide Dog, 11-week old black labrador, George.
Abbotsleigh enjoys a reciprocal relationship with Guide Dogs NSW/ACT, with George being the 10th puppy through the School. Our boarders benefit from a service project, and the joy of having a puppy in the Houses - while the Guide Dogs assocation receives back a confident dog ready for training.

Deputy Head of Boarding, Allysia Heness-Pugh takes responsibility with George but is assisted by the girls.
We recently had a photographer from The North Shore Times to the School for an article about George and our partnership with Guide Dogs NSW/ACT.
Many thanks to boarders Sophie Overton (Year 8) and Kate Stacy (Year 10) for helping George to pose for the cameras - which wasn't easy with a playful pup.
We congratulate Allysia for taking the lead with this worthwhile initiative.
