Our School Dog

Zuri is our fantastic school dog. Zuri is a chocolate Labrador and was just 9 weeks old when she started school on 1st June 2015. ‘Zuri’ is a Kiswahili word for ‘beautiful’ and follows the African theme of Rafiki which means ‘friend’, the name of our first school dog.

Her gentle nature brings joy to many children and adults at Flax. She has helped lots of children to overcome their anxieties by being a calm, gentle presence in school. Her favourite times of the day are lunchtime walks with the children, and helping to 'tidy' up the hall after lunch!
