We welcomed North Walsall Primary School to our development at Waterfront South Walsall on this June. We have welcomed many school groups to our sites in recent years and find these visits are enjoyed by the children who love doing the ‘hands on’ bricklaying and seeing the cranes and heavy plant.
Our site management produce an interesting visit programme and work hard to make these visits both educational and enjoyable for the children.
The visit starts with ‘a building site is not a playground’ warning the children against the dangers of playing on sites. Always popular is the ‘hands on’ bricklaying session followed by a look around the finished section of the site and a walk on the roof terraces with great views of the surrounding area.
Our staff also point out the different opportunities for apprenticeships and training up to University degree level in the construction industry.
Any schools interested in visiting sites, please contact Jessup Head Office on 01543 462468.
