BUDDING doctors, nurses, firemen and police constables turned up at a Wrexham primary school.

Pupils at Alexandra Community Primary School dressed up as what they want to be when they grow up as part of a topic for the newschool term.

Year one and two children have been learning about how the emergency services offer them help and support, through the theme of fire and water.

Children were asked to come into school as what they wanted to do as a career as part of the topic and a wide range of ideas were conveyed by the pupils at the school on Park Avenue.

Jenna Cawthorne, foundation phase leader at the school, said: “There were many different costumes.

“We had police officers, firemen, doctors, nurses, sports stars and an air hostess. It’s been a fantastic day for all the children involved.

“It has been a colourful day with loads going on and the children have really enjoyed themselves.”

Children also took part in a fire drill obstacle course outside where they got to be firemen extinguishing fake fires with water.

They also learned the Welsh for words associated with fire and water during parachute games.

Maesydre councillor and governor at the school, Carol O’Toole, said: “It is never too early to start thinking about what you want to do when you’re older.

“It is encouraging to see the school taking an active interest in helping the children think about their futures.

“It also helps them realise the importance of our public services, and the hard work they put in.

“I’ve not been a governor for long at the school but I am mightily impressed by the behaviour of the children and the dedication of the hard-working staff.”
