HORSE RIDING WITH OUR CHILDREN FROM THE AUTISTIC CLASS.

Each week the learners in our Autistic class head out to the stables on The Rest Road and their best friends, Bucket, Dream, Sandy and, the newest friend, Junior.
They each spend time on a horse and it is either outrides or some exercises and games on the horses. This time has become very important to this group and it has been amazing watching their interaction with the horses.

A VISIT TO THE LOWVELD AGRI SHOW.

A group of learners had an interesting morning at the Lowveld Agri Show.
There was so much to see and learn about. They met up with all the hens, ducks and some enormous roosters plus were priviledged to see a cow being milked.
They were then given a talk by a snake expert and a few of the learners were really impressed by the size of the one python. They all enjoyed wandering around at all the different stalls and getting some important facts and information. The morning ended with some yummy treats in the tent.
