As part of the Snowdogs by the Sea Sculpture trail, last Autumn Goldstone Primary enrolled in our Snowdogs Education Programme – creating their very own Snowpup, Goldy!
Goldy, along with 23 other School Snowpuppies, was displayed across the city in local libraries throughout the trail and came along to the Farewell Event too! At the end of the trail, Goldy and all the other Snowpups returned to their schools, reunited with the children who lovingly painted their coats.
As the School year drew to a close it seemed only fitting that Goldy had a place in the end of term show and was honoured with a lovely song all about him!
We got him from the Martlets, to help them with their Cause
Painted blue from head to foot, from tail to all four Paws
Each class has made a yellow patch to stick upon his back
Some knitted ears, a golden tail and a shiny sparkly sack
Goldy our Snowpup, lives by the sea
He’s part of our school and belongs to you and me
He greets us in the morning and wags his tail at night
Waiting at the entrance, he‘s a welcome Goldstone sight
He sniffs out all the action, he’s the dog we like to teach
He comes into our classrooms and has visits to the beach
He enjoys the peace and quiet of our lovely outside space
And joins in Goldstone’s Sports Day in the hope to win a race
He travelled across our city, on the Snowpup trail
He met the Mayor and made some friends, they liked his
He ended up in Hove Library, enjoying all the books
Having children pat his head, proud of his good looks!
This lovely song and all of the end of term show was created by Debbie Wallis.
Debbie said: “Everyone at Goldstone loves Goldy! We’re really pleased we got involved in the Snowdogs trail so including Goldy in our end of term show was a must.”
