To develop relationships within the local community, together with our contractor Bermar Building, we approached the local Girlington Primary School, and Head Teacher, Mrs Sue Wood, agreed to provide some permanent artwork created by children of both infant and junior classes for display within the new building. The children will be working on ideas and creating the artwork during the summer term so that they can be displayed to coincide with the opening of the building this September.
The children were also invited to participate in a colouring competition based on creating a poster on building site safety. There were book token prizes for each of the year group winners. The three winning “safety” posters have now been displayed on the site”s hoarding much to the pleasure of the children, parents and school staff.
Bermar will be introducing the children to “Ivor Goodsite” shortly to talk with them about the dangers of building sites. They have already provided the nursery children with high viz vests and helmets which they have loved.
