Inquiry: A visit from Anne and Peddy


Our Inquiry topic this term is: Rights for Everyone

We have been learning about different types of disabilities. Today we were lucky enough to get a visit from Anne and her guide dog Peddy.

We wrote questions that we wanted to find out the answers to about Anne and her blindness. We emailed them to Anne. Today she came into Nelson Central to answer them.

Here is a story that shows how special Peddy is:
Peddy is a working dog and she helps Anne because she is blind.
Peddy knows how to cross roads and knows when it is safe. You are not
allowed to pat Peddy because she might distracted.

By Jayden


Check out these videos to hear some of our questions for Anne and the answers to them.

We learned how important Peddy is to Anne, she helps Anne with so many things in her daily life.

Even though Anne is blind, she can still do many of the same things we can!
