Freehold Community Junior Infant and Nursery School in Oldham

Freehold Community Junior Infant and Nursery School in Oldham

9th November 2009

Ivor assisted Thomas Barnes & Sons with an educational assembly to warn children of the dangers of playing on building sites at Freehold Community Junior Infant and Nursery School in Oldham.

The children were fantastic! They were well behaved whilst the talk was given, and 10 volunteers from year 5 and 6 demonstrated the PPE safety wear to the rest of the children.

Prior to the event, the children were asked to design heath and safety posters that could be displayed around the school, and prizes were given to the children who participated.

After the assembly, the children gave Ivor a tour of their playground and in return they were able to role play at being builders digging the turf and getting “up close” to one of the JCBs!
