As this week is S.T.E.M week, we were visited by Mr Nezianya who came to tell us about his job as a civil engineer. He has worked on projects worth billions of pounds, therefore, his work carries a lot of responsibility. When he was younger, he originally wanted to be a doctor but soon realised his love of buildings and his dislike of blood. During the visit, we learnt a lot about the importance of accuracy in his work for example, when measuring or providing coordinates. Also, he explained how effective communication is vital and the need to adhere to strict health and safety regulations. Mr Nezianya urged the children to keep working hard with Mathematics and English – both of these subjects are essential in his occupation.
