Happy Birthday Gatsby

Clevedon Learning Trust pupils have this week celebrated Gatsby their school dog's first birthday.

The popular dog got even more fuss, pats and strokes than usual as Tickenham Primary School's incredibly popular real life mascot celebrated his first birthday.

The mini dachshund got a birthday surprise with pupils, parents and staff going for a dog walk across their picturesque grounds with other dog walkers.

The pupils and dogs walked across the fields and down to the stream in the fields behind school. 

Head of School Tristan Merriam said: "Gatsby has been an absolute star and so incredibly popular with pupils, parents, staff and the community. We loved celebrating his first birthday with him."

Gatsby helps children learn values including respect, compassion and trust.
