Pet Project

Last week, Year 9 Enterprise Students visited Brampton Primary School along with Oaktree Animal Centre staff and the group’s Business Advisor, Barry Ridley (Branch Manager of the Cumberland Building Society in Brampton). The visit was part of a project they are undertaking to explore the cost and responsibility required in having a pet.

The students had created games during their Enterprise lessons, including pet monopoly and top trumps, for the Year 1 and 2 pupils to play. The Brampton Primary School pupils drew their own pets, including a snake, Harris hawk, horses, tortoises, hamsters, ferrets, dogs and cats, with some pupils drawing their dream pets. During the visit, the primary school pupils also heard about the different animals at Oaktree Animal Centre, and Mr Ridley discussed the cost of looking after animals over their life time.
