Raystede Animal

Rescue Centre

Oak Class visit Raystede every fortnight. We take part in grooming and feeding the horses and donkeys, meeting rescue dogs and meet some of the other animals such as the sheep and goats, cats and smaller furry animals. It is an opportunity for the students to care for something, and for the rescue animals to develop trust in humans again.
