Dunn Street Primary School is proud to be associated with St Oswald’s Great North Snowdogs and we would like to thank Nexus for sponsoring our dog Mr Rufferty.
We held a design competition in school and many of the children’s designs featured our school prayer which states ‘As many hands build a house so many hearts make a school’ hence the numerous hearts and hands featured in our design.
The mosaic pattern on Mr Rufferty’s back is a stained glass window design that pays tribute to the Venerable Bede who is synonymous with Jarrow. The Viking helmet is a nod to Jarrow’s Viking heritage.
This Snowdog has been sponsored by Nexus.
Access to Mr Rufferty Dog:
