I am a Year Six student at an all-boys day and boarding school that sits on the edge of a river in Sydney. Most mornings at 8am, Sally, the school’s elderly white Labrador, walks the 80-metre journey down to the river to meet the day boys arriving on the school’s river ferry. She’s always happy to see us, and after greeting us all – and receiving lots of pats – Sally likes to jump aboard the school’s mini-bus for the ten-minute drive up the hill to the primary school. She then waits for recess, when she gets to enjoy more pats and some morning tea. After recess, she slowly ambles back to the main school. The only time Sally doesn’t venture out is when it’s raining – she’s a clever dog!
