When St Joan of Arc School visited Highbury New Park…

Highbury New Park, London

26th November 2014

Quintas Homes took the opportunity to educate children local to their project in Highbury New Park, London on the dangers of a construction site.

Suresh Kerai, Quintas Homes, Project Manager, led the talk with Ivor Goodsite. The children had been learning about rocks at school, therefore Quintas Homes commenced the session with a small discussion on various rock types.

Ivor Goodsite’s Construction Site Safety Workbooks were then handed out, which proved to be very popular, with much interaction and enthusiasm from the children.

Quintas Homes will visit the school to hand out some prizes to the pupils once one of the activities in the workbooks has been completed.
