Knowsley Safari to host wellbeing sessions for hundreds of schoolchildren
Wild and Well at Knowsley Safari

Knowsley Safari’s Wild and Well sessions are available until March 2024.

To celebrate World Mental Health Day on October 10, Knowsley Safari is expanding its Wild and Well programme to hundreds more primary schools, allowing even more schoolchildren an opportunity to reconnect with nature, thrive outdoors and nurture their wellbeing.  

Previously the woodland learning sessions have only been available to schools in the Knowsley borough, but from 10th October any primary school able to travel to the Safari can take part in the wildlife-inspired mental health and wellbeing sessions.

The Wild and Well interactive activities are all designed around the great outdoors to create a strong connection between children and nature through hands-on experiences and team building. Activities include creating bird feeders, splashing in puddles, building dens and scavenger hunts.   

The sessions also coincide with the government’s recently launched Education Nature Park initiative which is a campaign highlighting the benefits of connecting young people to nature – something Knowsley Safari is committed to furthering. 

Knowsley Safari’s Wild and Well sessions are available until March 2024 and are ideal for Reception to Year 3, although the learning sessions can be adapted to suit children’s needs and age.   

Nikki Burton Mallott, Head of Learning and Discovery, said: 

“There are many different studies linking the benefits of nature and wildlife to children with wellbeing and mental health.  

“By expanding the reach of our Wild and Well sessions to children outside the Knowsley borough, we hope to be able to support hundreds more children with their mental wellbeing.” 

Schools within the Knowsley borough can access the sessions free of charge as part of Knowsley Safari’s commitment to making education accessible within the local community. Schools outside of the borough will be charged £8.50 per pupil.
