Youngsters at Lauriston Primary School found out how guide dogs are trained when some of the friendly canines visited their school on a whistle stop tour.
The London Guide Dogs team stopped off in Rutland Road on their travels around the capital in a double decker bus to mark national Guide Dogs Week.
Headteacher Lisa Sharratt said the experience was fantastic.
“The children found out how guide dogs support people in and around our community,” she said.
“It also raised an awareness of how much it costs to train a guide dog and how important guide dogs are in supporting the visually impaired in their everyday lives.”
