Mila, our resident Junior Phase therapy dog, celebrated her second birthday this month. The learners asked that we give her a party and wanted to sing happy birthday to her too!
Mila is instrumental in the class by allowing the children to understand the needs of other living creatures. Mila provides the opportunity for our children to take on new responsibilities through caring for her. She also provides a constant topic of conversation, comfort and reward.

The learners from the Junior Phase love their outings to the ice rink. This is an opportunity for them to socialise, gain confidence and have fun. They also benefit from the physical exercise and the challenge of trying to balance on the ice. We are grateful to the Northgate Ice Rink for making their facility available at no charge.
