Where Did You Find or Leave Bear?: Explore Haxby Library Learning Centre

Scout Aculade arrived at the library just as our teddy bear’s picnic was ending. He was very upset as most of the other bears had to go home, but some of them decided to stay and keep him company. The staff at the library made some more sandwiches and Scout Aculade had a small picnic of his own with his new friends.

After the picnic all the bears read a story together. Now Scout Aculade is waiting to go on his next adventure.




Where Did You Find or Leave Bear?: Haxby Library, near York.

We found S.A Bear in the library, whilst he was relaxing with a good book. He decided he would like to come home with two brothers who he met there called Toby and Aidan. He played train with them and helped in their vegetable garden. He enjoyed doing some chalk drawings and then met a new friend called Paddington. After a lot of fun he continued his adventures with Aidan and Toby, going on holiday with them to the Isle of Wight. When it was time for Aidan and Toby to go home Scout decided to stay on down south. Enjoy your adventures Scout!

Where Did You Find or Leave Bear?: Lisbon, Poertugal

A friend of mine gave me Diomedes in Lisbon and I took him to Poland, where I’m studying. We had a really good time. In Gdansk, the most beautiful city in Poland, we saw the stunning view in the highest site of the city. We visited monuments and even watch the Euro 2012 matches! Now I’ll give Diomedes to a friend that will take him to Japan. He is almost in New Zealand!

Where Did You Find or Leave Bear?: Giffords Circus Tour 2010

Hi, this is Fratellini writing.
In summer 2010 I went to see the show “Yasmine – a musical” from Giffords Circus in England. I liked the show. So I stayed with one of the artist.
I become friend with Brian the Goose and with the horses. I favorite place was on top of the huge ball from the chinese acrobat.

I than travelled to somewhere. I don’t know where because, I was in a suitcase than I was stored in a box. That was boring

Today I finally decided to climb out of the suitcase. Watch the picture. There I stayed for a long time… almost two years.

So I am happy to write something now. Watch me writing on the computer…

I will go out today and than I will write you where I am. When I find out…


Where Did You Find or Leave Bear?: Bologna, Italy

I met Diomendes in Bologna were I was studying. A friend of mine gave him to me and asked me to take care of him and to take him to my country were the sun shines all year round (at least ultimately!). So we went on holiday in the Azores Islands were the green and blue are together. There we had a good time, we saw some whales and dolphins and ate good fish. After that, we returned to Lisbon where I live and I showed him my city (there a photo with an old Lisbon’s church, try to find him!). Diomendes is very glutton and was always eating! There’s a photo proving that! =)
It was a pleasure to spend some time with Diomendes! Now he’s with a friend of mine that went in Erasmus to Poland.
I hope to ear from him soon! =D


Where Did You Find or Leave Bear?: In Montpellier (France)

I met Diomedes in Montpellier, a beautiful french town in the south, where I used to study for two years. A friend of mine just came back from her internship in Oxford (UK) and gave it to me as I was leaving to Bologna (Italy), for an exchange year called erasmus. I accepted to take care of him and show him around… He stayed with me 9 long months, on my desk, and I got him a little tour the last days. The photos are supposed to represent the touristic places of Bologna: Le Due Torri, the fountain of Nettuno (Poseidon), the italian motorcycle Vespa, the gardens Margherita…
I hope he enjoyed the Italian life. I will let him go with a friend of mine for the next destination… PORTUGAL!!






Where Did You Find or Leave Bear?: Brought to school by Tolly

Professor Basket, a.k.a. ‘The Professor’ arrived at St Edward’s in the depths of mid-winter. He was obviously still in some sort of sleepy, hibernation trance and took a while to fully wake up and stretch his legs. Ten Tors was the challenge and he began his training moving around the Headmaster’s Study in a purposeful and yet rather sporadic way. Eventually he graduated to camping in Gloucester and then was finally rewarded with a weekend in Dartmoor in May 2011. He led the school’s 45 mile team around the moor in an exemplary, yet somewhat professor-like manner, helping with directions whenever required. Sunday saw him cross the fininsh line tired, a little grubby – and yet very proud of himself. A quieter life beckons as he now moves to another careful custodian.

Where Did You Find or Leave Bear?: Found in Rondevlei, Garden Route, South Africa. Left in Cape Town

Relaxing on the verandah, I gazed dreamily at the sunset over the lake. A sudden shriek tore apart the peace, followed by snarling, spitting and screeching. I ran to the bushes below the house – a lynx was crouched in the grass,a teddy-bear clamped in his jaws. My cat Kelsey was leaping up and down, slashing her paws at the predator’s face. A claw caught his nose and with a grunt he dropped the bear and slunk away.
Kelsey uttered a “rowrrl” of triumph as I picked up the quivering bear. “Mamma mia,” he groaned. Once safely at the house I inspected the furry little body, but found no wounds. After a dose of Rescue Remedy the bear was calmer. “My name is Giuseppe Armondo,” he explained, “and I am on a tour of the world.”
Kelsey and I exchanged cynical glances – what crazy bravado, a small bear travelling all alone!
Giusepppe went on, “I came to South Africa to see the wild animals, but I didn’t expect it to be so close up. I was just going for a little hike.”
“This is Rondevlei,” I said, “part of the Wilderness National Park. There are many animals here – deer, monkeys, porcupines, and up there -” I pointed at the hills – “baboons and even some leopards. It was bad luck that you met up with the great nocturnal hunter, the lynx.”
The bear shivered. “I thank your brave cat for saving my life.”
Kelsey modestly licked a paw.
Then Giuseppe murmered, “My neck hurts – that giant cat shook me very hard.”
“How do your arms feel?” I asked.
“There is pain in my shoulders and my paws are going numb.”
“Well, Giuseppe,” I said, “you’ve come to the right place. This is the Body Stress Release Academy, where we train students how to release the tension that becomes locked into people’s bodies.”
I carried him to the technique room an showed him a nerve chart. “Compression here, in your lower neck, affects the nerve supply down your arms and into your paws. Lie down on the couch so I can do some pressure tests, and find the exact sites of body stress.”
After I did several gentle prods on the bear’s neck, he sat up and smiled, moving his neck freely.
Giuseppe stayed at the Academy for two days, sleeping on the couch with Kelsey. Yesterday I put him on the bus to Cape Town. As I waved goodbye, he called out, “I’m going to climb Table Mountain, I’m going to swim with sharks, and I’m going to meet Nelson Mandela!”
I just nodded and smiled, for who am I to stamp on the dreams of a courageous but delusional teddy-bear?
