A trainee veterinary nurse returned to her former school to deliver a special demonstration to pupils to introduce them to the world of work.

Amie Goldman visited Glade Primary School, Atherton Road, Clayhall, last week to take part in the school’s world of work week.

Amie, from Goddards Veterinary Group, and Jade Juniper from Vets4Pets, brought equipment, X-rays and a dog to show children what they can expect should they wish to follow in her footsteps.

Year 1 teacher Bev Craggs said: “I think Amie was the highlight of the people that have come in, although they’ve all been brilliant.

“What she did was perfect because with the young children qualifications don’t mean much to them.

“The children were very excited because a lot of them don’t have pets and they were very well behaved.

“We’ve had lawyers, accountants and doctors come in, it gives the children an idea of the jobs that are out there.

“Everyone in Years 1 and 2 wants to be a vet now.”
