Ton-Yr-Ywen Primary School, Cardiff

18th July 2011

Profix Construction Ltd asked Ivor Goodsite to attend the Ton-Yr-Ywen Primary School in Cardiff to help give a safety on site presentation to the pupils. Profix are currently carrying out building work at the school so it was an ideal opportunity to educate the children about the dangers on construction sites.

After the safety presentation, the children took part in an art competition with the winning entries being put on to Profix’s vans. The children had a great time and really enjoyed seeing Ivor.

Headteacher, Mrs B F Brown, commented:

“The safety message…is particularly important to our children in Ton Yr Ywen as part of our school building will be a construction site over the summer months.”
