Ladybridge Primary School visit a site

Bolton Community College site

24th March 2009

Ivor joined BAM Construction Ltd to appear at a school visit to the Bolton Community College site.  Children from the local Ladybridge Primary School, who are in year two and aged between six and seven, were given a tour around the perimeter of the site and then taken to a classroom where they were taught about the dangers of playing on building sites, with Ivor’s assistance. The visit also incorporated a multiple choice quiz about building materials which tied in with their curriculum.

Useful resources

As part of your visit you may want to access or download resources to support you, including a school presentation or Child Protection Guidance template.

Costume hire

Industry mascots Ivor and Honor Goodsite can be hired to attend construction-related events to engage with children and encourage safety on site. Find out more about how you can hire the costume characters and promote a positive image of the industry.
