The 24 hour curriculum on Langdale
The benefits of working with animals on improving mental health and wellbeing are well documented. Langdale Unit visited Welburn Hall School as part of their Summer 24 hour curriculum programme.
The boys loved giving Skye a bath, it proved relaxing for both the boys and the pony. Jamie was terrified of the ponies on his first visit here but has set himself little goals each week and managed to be able to stroke and bath the bigger of the two ponies, a huge achievement for him! Well done!
The boys have also spent some time feeding the piglets and watering the vegetables. Outdoors and with the animals proved to be good therapy and has improved the mental wellbeing of the boys.
