About 25 youngsters were given the rare chance to meet a ‘unicorn’ at an event in Portsmouth High School, Kent Road, Southsea.

Set up by the site’s forest school teacher, Joan West, it was a chance to give youngsters an unforgettable encounter riding on the creature and to learn about nature.

Mrs Kent said: ‘The kids couldn’t believe it. One said “See mummy, I told you unicorns were real”. It had a magical effect.’

A forest site has been based at the Southsea private school for four years. It runs a host of outdoor classes and activities.

Mrs Kent said she wanted to show the community what the facility does. The ‘unicorn’ was provided by Pony Magic.
