On Wednesday 25th May, one of our parents and her colleague, who are veterinary nurses came to school as part of the PSHE curriculum ‘Caring for animals in the environment. The children enjoyed learning about how veterinary practices work and support families with pets to help them maintain a healthy lifestyle and the importance of regular visits to the vets. The children took an active role within the presentation looking at x-rays and checking for broken bones. Some of the children found it a little gruesome when introduced to some of the parasites that can be found in animals if they are not cared for properly. However pets can sometimes fall ill unexpectedly but the children knew with certainty that a qualified vet was only a phone call away.
