Foothills Junior Vets
School Holiday Program
We want to help children with an interest in animals to gain insight and invaluable knowledge into what working at veterinary hospital is really like. Attendees will have the opportunity to see what happens behind the scenes at a working, AVA accredited veterinary hospital.
Available dates are October 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 8th, 9th & 10th.
Primary school yr 3-6 (Wed & Thurs sessions)
High School yr 7-12 (Tues sessions)
Sessions run 10am – 12pm.
Children will spend the morning with some of the Foothills staff learning all about
- preventative pet health care,
- blood smears
- anatomy and much more!
They will have the opportunity to examine some of the Foothills furr-family and will take home a keepsake on the day.
Classes are split into primary school and high school age with each course tailored to ages. The high school groups will also talk about career pathways.
Guardians are welcome to wait in reception, children will not leave the premises for the entirety of the program and will be interacting with one of our friendly staff pets.
Places are limited and do fill fast. Please book in advance to avoid disappointment.
Educational Workshops presented by
Dr Emily Barrick

Dr Emily is not only passionate about providing a high standard of veterinary care to her patients and their owners, she is also enthusiastic about educating clients and the general public about preventative health and management of issues our pets often face.
The Basic First Aid Workshop which she presented in early 2019 gained wonderful feedback and due to popular demand, she is now presenting a number of these throughout the year!
As if Emily isn’t busy enough, she is so passionate about spreading knowledge that she is also currently studying a Diploma in Education.
Emily also presents a Senior Pet Workshop during Foothills Senior Month and she is working on a number of other exciting workshops to bring to you in the near future so stay tuned!
