Meet Our Animals

We keep a number of animals at the school including chickens, guinea pigs and tortoises. The children love spending time with our animals and develop important life skills from their interactions.

We love having animals in school. Caring for animals first-hand:

  • Opens up a world of learning and increases engagement across the curriculum. ​
  • Raises self-esteem and builds a sense of responsibility and respect for others. ​
  • Helps children expand their emotional language and understand the importance of caring for others. ​
