Pupils Calum Christie and Logan Fenton secured the endorsement of the school’s senior leadership, including rector Carol Ann Penrose, and raised £2500 for the initial purchase and set-up costs for Bella.
Logan, 15, said: “Bella will be a calming presence and she will make us all feel safe. It will be nice to be able to look to her for support with anxiety.
Protocols have been put in place for young people or staff with pet allergies or phobias. Anyone with any concerns or questions should email Mrs Jeffrey at: email@example.com.
A JustGiving page has been launched by Bell Baxter pupils to help raise money for Bella’s ongoing costs.
