Chloe Picks Up May Animal Care Award

Chloe Murray has received an East Durham College Student of the Month award for the work on her Animal Care course at the College’s Houghall Campus in May.

Chloe, 18, from Darlington, received her Student of the Month award at a ceremony on Monday evening held at the College’s Scene1 restaurant.

The former Hummersknott Academy student has been praised for the hard work she has put in both on the course and on her work placements.

East Durham College Animal Care lecturer, John Reid said: “Chloe is a fantastic student, her work this year has been exceptional.

“Chloe takes great pride in her work and is on target to achieve a Distinction Star grade.

“Her hard work is not just showing in the classroom though, Chloe has shown increasing skills and confidence in practical sessions, this has been echoed in her exceptional employers report from her work placement at Darlington’s K9 Pursuits, dog training centre.”
