Diolch Ifor!

Ysgol Dewi Sant, Cardiff

20th October 2014

Ivor visited the children and teachers at Ysgol Dewi Sant on 21st October where he was well received with a resounding ‘Hello Ivor’ from all the pupils and teachers at the school.

The Headteacher, Mrs Helen Jennings, then proceeded with the introductions of Ivor, ISG Site Manager, Rob Boyd and ISG Design Guru, Elliot Palmer.

The Ivor Goodsite presentation was conducted in Welsh by the Head and Ivor even gave demonstrations of how to wear the correct PPE and other site activities. The ISG team were assisted by the pupils themselves.

Following on from the presentation came some questions from the pupils, who really pushed the expertise of the site team considering their young age range with some very good questions.

The children were also asked to produce a picture of what they will see on site between the start of the project and the Christmas half term with the best receiving a prize.

When all was finished, Ivor then proceeded to meet and greet all the children and was accepted with lots of handshakes, high fives and even a few hugs.

Photographs were then taken and Ivor and the team left, again to a very resounding ‘Diolch Ifor’ (Thanks Ivor)…

Another very successful visit from ISG and Ivor Goodsite.
