Ivor and Carillion visit local schools in Leeds

Local primary schools in Leeds

8th December 2014

During the first week of the Primary Academy Projects undertaken by Carillion, the Project Manager, Matt Patton, visited schools to give a talk and presentation regarding safety.

The school pupils were shown how to stay safe while a building site is right next door.

Following Matt’s visit, Ivor Goodsite visited each of the schools a number of weeks later to ensure the pupils were still aware of the dangers and to re-enforce the message on how to stay safe.

Ivor handed out sweets and prizes to the children that had won the safety poster competition. The visits were very well received with fantastic comments received from both the school teachers and client.
