Special guests visit school

Whitepost farm goes to shs b

Students at Sutherland House School had an amazing time today when a group from White Post Farm came in to school to visit.

They brought along with them a few surprise visitors too including rabbits and mice - as well as a few more exotic creatures including a snake. The children got the opportunity to get up close to a variety of animals and learn more about them.

The interactive activity was arranged during Children's Mental Health Week (6-12 February); a national annual awareness week that helps shed light on the importance of young people's mental health.

This year’s theme is Let’s Connect, which looks to encourage children and adults to consider how we can make connections. One of the best ways to boost young people's mental health and wellbeing is to help them stay connected with others by sharing experiences.

For more information about Children's Mental Health Week, read on.

  • Autism East Midlands' Children's Service and Family Support Hubs work hard to enable young autistic people to connect with others through a variety of organised activities. To find out more >> visit our Family Support Hubs page.
