Morgan Sindall invited Ivor Goodsite to a school assembly

Wirral

10 November 2015

Morgan Sindall Invited Ivor Goodsite along to a local School in Wirral.

The event was based around educating the children about the dangers of building sites and why they should stay on the right side of the hoarding.

Morgan Sindall carried out two presentations each about 30 minutes long and tailored them to suit the ages of the children 5-6 and 7-10 years.  There were roughly 400 children in total who took part.

Both David Platt the Senior Project Manager and Gill Roberts our SHE adviser carried out the presentations. David basically introduced us and updated the children on progress on site and what they can expect to see over the coming months.

Gill carried out a short presentation followed by a video of what can happen if children venture onto site without a responsible site based adult and correct PPE. The photos are of the children trying on the PPE to look the same as Ivor.

The presentation went very well and the school appreciated our involvement.
