Youngsters learned about the world of work when a greyhound called Fudge visited their school.

Ruth Thomas, who works for Dogs Trust, and Fudge were among several special guests at St Dominic’s Catholic Primary School as part of Work Week, a programme developed and delivered by Inspire! Education Business Partnership to teach primary school children about the different jobs that people do.

Nursery class children at the school in Ballance Road, Homerton, were enthralled as Fudge was quietly led into their classroom.

“Dogs Trust looks after dogs who have no home,” Ruth explained after introducing Fudge, who is four-years-old, the same age as many of the children.

Ruth described the best way to care for a dog and how people working for Dogs Trust are involved in feeding and grooming the dogs, ensuring that they have toys to play with and get plenty of exercise.
