The children explored the site and were all given the chance to meet and groom donkeys, Bramble and Jasper.

Rachel Page, education officer at the donkey sanctuary, said: “The children were shown our understanding donkeys zone where we discussed donkey care and behaviour.

“I talked about the history of the charity which will celebrate its fiftieth anniversary next and about the work we do in the UK and around the world.”

The pupils’ visit was tailored to fit in with the school curriculum, ‘reflecting on moral, social and cultural issues, using imagination to understand the experiences of other people and animals’.
