St Margaret’s Secondary School: Student Attachment Programme

A very fulfilling morning at St Margaret’s Secondary School’s Professional Career Guidance Day! Dr Joanna Goh from Mount Pleasant (Farrer) shared about her veterinary journey to almost 100 students while Mach the therapy cat distracted all the girls with his charms. Thank you teachers for organising this meaningful event. We could be looking at some bright future vets here!

Dr Joanna Goh spoke with almost 100 students, sharing the dreams, realities and pathways to be a veterinarian. We could be looking at some bright future vets here!


We are pleased to have Belinda Chong and her handsome therapy cat Mach from Cat-Assisted Therapy Singapore – CATS who is easily a distraction!





We believe in reaching out to our community in various ways. One of which is educating individuals in animal care and veterinary medicine, especially students who are considering the pathways to be a veterinarian.

I am grateful that Dr Joanna Goh came to our school to share on a career in veterinary science. She provided us with information related to the educational pathway for this vocation and her personal experiences in the journey.

The visit to Mount Pleasant (Farrer) was an invaluable experience for me and my school mates. We got to see different components of an animal clinic. I was fascinated by the many rooms, each having its purpose, and the different types of medical equipment.

This has been an unforgettable personal experience. More impactful than reading information off the internet or brochures. I am truly thankful for this opportunity.

Dr Joanna Goh was very engaging during her sharing on being a veterinarian. She was enthusiastic to help us with our questions. Her insightful sharing which included many interesting and meaningful experiences has greatly inspired me to work towards my goal of joining the profession.

I was also privileged to be invited to visit Mount Pleasant (Farrer) where my school mates and I were met by the friendly and helpful staff. The clinic was bigger than it looked from outside and the whole area was well maintained. It was heartwarming to see the clinic making extra effort to find homes for abandoned animals. We got to see how an ultrasound can be used to examine a dog’s kidney. It was an eye-opening experience.

Seeing the way the staff cared for their animal patients was uplifting. If I have a sick pet, I would definitely bring it to Mount Pleasant for medical attention as I know the staff will do a good job caring for my pet.


Our education programmes include talks, project collaboration, work experience, student attachments and clinic visits. To be part of our outreach, email We will be delighted to discuss further.
