As Junior Infants have been learning about ‘The Vet’ in Aistear this month, we had a very special visitor in the school. Lydia from Virginia Veterinary Practice came to visit all the boys and girls in Junior Infants. Lydia brought a dog, a cat and a hamster. We also got a visit from a guinea pig thanks to Ms. Gibbons.
We learned all about everyday life in the vets, what sort of animals vets look after, what equipment a vet uses.
We got to try out heart monitors, cameras to see inside animals mouths and ears, stethoscopes and most importantly, we got to pet the different animals!
Thank you to Lydia and Virginia Veterinary Clinic for taking the time to visit us. Everyone in Junior Infants loved it.
