Starting a Farm School for severely disabled children might not seem to be a very good idea at first sight, but the staff at Churchill Park Special School certainly know different when it comes to the education and welfare of their pupils.
The school has found that even the most severely disabled child can make a contribution to the care of animals which adds a whole new dimension to their lives. The Rotary Club of King’s Lynn have donated £1,000 to Churchill Park School to purchase some very specialised equipment following the recent launch of the farm.
The farm so far has a horse, goats, pigs, chickens and ducks - and collecting eggs from the latter and cooking them in the kitchen, is a whole new experience for the children.
