RSPCA Short Tails

School Holiday Program – Part 1

What kid doesn’t love animals? And what parent doesn’t love a way to entertain their children in the school holidays?

RSPCA NSW’s School Holiday Program gives kids aged eight to 17 an opportunity to see behind-the-scenes at an RSPCA shelter and learn more about becoming a responsible pet owner. The sessions are split between three age groups to ensure appropriate content: eight to 11 year-olds learn the basics about animal care, 12 – 14 year olds receive more detail about the various aspects of the organisation, while senior students can attend a careers day to find out more about careers involving animals.

School Holiday Programs are run at the Sydney Shelter at Yagoona and the Hunter Shelter at Rutherford. To find out more visit:
