Unusual Guests Flew In To Healing School

Students had the chance to get up close and personal with a variety of birds of prey.

The various hawks and owls were brought into the school by The Raptor Foundation. The Cambridgeshire-based organisation rescues, rehabilitates and returns injured birds of prey back to the wild.

It also aims to protect and preserve them through education and conservation, providing opportunities for schools and the general public to see the birds at first hand.

The Healing School Principal said: "The visit is something different for the children to enjoy and participate in.

It's not often they will get a chance to see hawks and owls at first hand. They're a wonderful sight and we're delighted to welcome The Raptor Foundation to the school."
