Treasure hunt at Rainham Village Primary

Rainham Village Primary School, Essex

7th March 2012

Ivor Goodsite was invited to a presentation given by Miller Construction, to the pupils of Rainham Village Primary School in Essex. The children learned all about Ivor and what he gets up to, and also about the refurbishments Miller are doing to their school. Ivor Goodsite then escorted the children to the site, and the construction works were explained in more detail.

Miller held an artwork competition where children were asked to design a poster based on construction and Ivor Goodsite. The school governor then picked the winners, and a winner was picked from each year group and given an Easter egg by Ivor. There were then 2 overall winners who also got books and book tokens. Well done guys!

The children then enjoyed a treasure hunt in the school playgrounds where Ivor had carefully hidden prizes that the children found, won and shared. Happy Easter!
