Some weird and wonderful creatures paid a visit to the boys and girls at Carrick-on-Suir’s Little Rascals Playgroup on their graduation day.

The Animal Road Show introduced the children to some native and exotic animals, insects and reptiles ranging from snakes, a lizard and chinchilla to the more familiar hedgehog, owl, rabbit and tortoise.

The Carrickbeg playschool kids learned about where they came from, what they ate and the type of home they build. They also got the opportunity to touch and hold each creature.

Parents and other family members of the students attended the fun day, which began with each child receiving a certificate to mark the completion of their time at playschool.
