Litia and Vivienne, Year 5 students from Room 15, have been reading "Duster" by Margaret Beames. This story will appeal to all dog lovers. "Fliss is playing softball at school with her friends when she finds a small, bedraggled dog by the boundary fence. It’s exhausted , hungry and responsive to the children’s attention. The name Duster is agreed on. The group of friends explore several possibilities for keeping their canine companion. They are reminded by the adults involved of the practical barriers to instant and unplanned dog ownership. A stopgap solution is found and Duster becomes involved in the school community, though not without unforeseen consequences."
