In Kensington we are working with St Cuthbert’s Catholic Primary School, a local school in Liverpool.
We are working with Kier to construct a new school for St Cuthbert’s Primary. We like to keep the children involved with the progress of the site works – they can view the work through our display windows on the construction site of their new school location.
In addition to this we are building mini construction sites in the school grounds for pupils to play on and have fun with. Our aim is to encourage children to view construction as an interesting future job and educate them about the need for civil engineering.
We’ve encouraged St Cuthbert’s to take part in a writing competition about their new school build. The winning child was awarded a £50 book voucher for her well written piece.
Following on from the writing competition, we helped the pupils bury their time capsule (including the winning article) in the foundations of the new school.
The pupils participated in a road safety walk with Brake charity and we donated £100 to the cause, for their efforts.
We recently held an art competition where the winning entries will be enlarged and shown on the walls of our Empress Road compound in Kensington. We awarded the 1st place winner £25 book vouchers, with 2nd place and 3rd place each winning £15 and £10 book vouchers. The theme of the art contest was building their new school and roadworks. We had a lot of fantastic art submitted so it was a hard decision to choose a first, second and third place. The children have been excited to take part in the competition and they (along with ourselves!) can’t wait to see their artwork up on the walls of our compound.
