The children had a visit from Steve to hear about building site
safety ahead of the summer holidays.The pupils were also invited to design a
poster about the dangers that can be found on construction sites. The winner
will see their poster displayed at the site and will be presented with an
Amazon Kindle Fire tablet.
Head of school Julie Stevens said: “It was fantastic to host the
visit from Tilia Homes and the pupils were really engaged with the talk and
asked lots of good questions.
“With the summer holidays approaching and the new development
beginning to take shape, it is important for the children to understand about
the dangers of playing near live construction sites and I think the poster
competition is a great way to make sure they take that message on board. I’m
looking forward to seeing their designs!”
Steve Garrington commented: “The health and safety of the local
communities in which we build is of paramount importance to Tilia Homes and it
was great to be able to talk to the pupils and deliver a really important
message around safety on building sites. The children were bright and
enthusiastic and I’m sure we’ll be receiving some creative responses to our
site safety poster challenge!”
