Police dogs visit Glenbrook School

On Friday 24 November, Glenbrook School received a special visit from Hamilton Police. Constable Brown and Sergeant Sanford brought their police dogs to visit the children of Glenbrook School after student, Alexandra Stuart-Burton won a police dog competition last school holidays.

The children were treated to some police dog tricks and learned about the training and costs associated with training a police dog. They were impressed with the speed of the dogs, their ability to listen to the adults and how lovely they were. All the children were able to get up close and personal.

Principal Lysandra Stuart said it was wonderful Police were able to engage and connect with the children at this level. “We are very grateful for Constable Brown and Sergeant Sandford travelling this far to share a visit with us, even though we are not part of Hamilton schools.”

Since you’re here… we have a small favour to ask. More and more people want the Post than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The Post’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. With investigative reporting, we often don't know at the beginning how a story will unfold and how long it might take to uncover. This can mean it is costly – particularly as we often face legal threats that attempt to stop our reporting. But we remain committed to raising important questions and exposing wrongdoing. And we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as NZ$5, you can support the Post – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
