Nearly a Vet Convention - April 7

A veterinary hospital in Brisbane has come up with a terrific initiative to educate primary school children on what the job of a veterinarian entails.

Kids (over 4 years) are invited to attend the 'Nearly a Vet Convention' to be held at the Manly Road 24hr Veterinary Hospital during the Easter holidays.

What is a Nearly a Vet Convention?

On Saturday 7th April, aspiring vets are welcome to join Rebecca Johnson, best-selling author of the Juliet, Nearly a Vet and the Vet Cadets series, and the winner of the 2015 Prime Ministers Prize for teaching Primary School Science.

Kids can join other ‘Nearly Vets’ as they practice their vetting skills and learn about the things real vets do, with the assistance of some extra special guests!

They will also receive some tips on great story writing and character development as well as receive a Nearly a Vet Kit to take home.

Each kit contains:

• A proper child-sized heavy duty lab coat
• A working stethoscope
• A face mask
• Surgical gloves
• A real digital thermometer
• A pipette
• A specimen jar
• A bandage
• A Nearly a Vet diary
• A syringe pen
• A pet pack for stuffed animals

Tickets are strictly limited so don't leave it too long!

When: Saturday 7th April 2018, from 3:00pm to 4:30pm

Where: Manly Road 24hr Veterinary Hospital, 219 Manly Road, Manly West, QLD, 4179

Cost: $35 per child (over 4 years).
