Swapping the classroom for a construction site and adding hi-vis jackets and hard hats to their school uniform – house building made an appearance on the timetable for Pontefract pupils.
Around 60 youngsters from Cobblers Lane Primary School – recently renamed Cherry Tree Academy – were invited to find out first hand about the world of bricks and mortar during a visit to our Manor Park development in Pontefract.
A chat from the health and safety team, the chance to get up close and personal with static machinery, a mini tour of the Manor Park site and the opportunity to see various stages of the house building process formed a packed timetable for the nine and 10 year olds.
Three groups of children visited the development over two days, and each left with a goodie bag and Easter treats to mark their visit. We also donated a cherry tree to the school to mark the change of name.
Pat Tennyson, connections and marketing manager, said: “It was our pleasure to welcome the youngsters who showed a real interest and enthusiasm throughout their visit – made possible by members of the site and sales teams.”
Karen Briggs, Cherry Tree Academy head teacher, added: “Our thanks to Linden Homes for inviting to us to see elements of the development taking shape and for making the visit so informative and enjoyable.”
