Ivor attended one of Neilcott Constructions sites to give students an overview of their new school building, detailing how works were progressing on site and when they could expect the new building to be finished.

Neilcott Construction invited members of the School Council to visit the site and to report back to the rest of the school upon project progress.

Due to the amount of construction works currently being undertaken in the area close to the new building he also gave them a very informative talk on health and safety and warned them of the dangers of construction and advised them to be extra vigilant on their way into school and on the way home.

The students very kindly offered to produce some posters to be put up in and around the site.
