Visitors of the animal kind.

Wednesday was a busy day not only did we have the awesome drama group from Nayland College but Tia arranged for a friend to visit us with some animals. The children were very interested to meet a miniature horse , a small terrier dog and a huge Great Dane, what a contrast. Children excitedly waited for their turn to brush the horse or walk the small dog. A few of the children gathered round the Great Dane and I think they were completely in awe of it's size. The looks on their faces when it put its front legs on the owners shoulders was priceless.
This visit gave the children a wonderful opportunity to learn about being safe around animals and also some of the aspects of care involved in having a pet. Thanks for coming guys and also thanks Tia for arranging it.
