PUPILS at a Scarborough school enjoyed a bit of animal magic this week.

A calf, a lamb, baby goat, pot-bellied pig, five-day-old piglet, rabbit, ducks, mice and a guinea pig were bought to St Augustine’s School.

Advanced teaching assistant Angie Cooke organised the visit for year eight pupil Michal Szczerbicki, who was born blind.

She said: “We thought he has never been in contact with animals before. He was a bit frightened at first but he got used to them and was really excited by the end. It was a fantastic afternoon.”

Students who take social skills and have studied animal care were also able to spend time with the animals, who were provided by The Purple Pig Company.
