orphans and the old age homes about 3 weeks ago.  What a day it was for the kids.  There was food galore, games, horse rides, jumping castles and even a visit from Father Christmas on a fire engine and even got to explore in the fire engine. Both the kids and the mother who accompanied them had an amazing day and were so exhausted when they all got home.  Thank you to all who made the day such a special memory for all.

Horse riding

Healing with Horses Therapeutic Centre had their annual end of year show and party.  Excitement all around as the kids were so proud to show us all they have learnt over the year but most of all, we were all so excited and beaming with pride at how much our kids had grown within themselves and the confidence and exuded from them through this time with the Therapeutic Centre.  Thank you to the amazing ladies who work so hard to bring about such amazing work with each child.

All our junior school kids at Waterford were involved in the end of year Talent Show at the school and what a great group of kids we have.  Some of our girls modeled very beautifully and our young lads were strong body builders.  Check out the talent we have.

Next week, so much more excitement awaits us too.
