Pygmy goats and alpacas help students with their mental health Updated: 2021-05-17 09:58:49 KST

Pygmy goats and alpacas are not usually expected to be seen in school yards, but oddly enough, they are the latest additions at Headland School in Penarth in the UK.
These creatures are getting a lot of attention from students, who also say they are getting a great deal of benefit from them.

"If you're having a bad day you could just come, you could express your feelings and you could just calm and you can spend time with them."

There are also ducks and chickens, with students taking full responsibility for their care.
One student even says his motivation to come to school more has been boosted so he can look after them.
Staff say the animals are a huge help for both the education and mental health of students, as they open up to the animals about issues and problems in their lives.
