Pupils learn tricks of the trades thanks to Bellway

 Bellway’s visit to High Park Primary School

Bellway Homes’ regional health and safety manager recently visited pupils at High Park Primary School in Ruchill Park to provide a presentation ahead of the housebuilder starting work locally on a new residential development.

As part of the school’s daily assembly, Willie Jeffrey was invited to talk to pupils about the new site, called Ashlar Village, as well as highlight the importance of safety on a live construction site.

As part of the presentation, Willie asked the children to identify a variety of tools and guess the job title of who would typically use them. The children with the right answer were invited to put on a hard hat and hi-vis and hold the tools until all the different trades were matched.

Willie Jeffrey said: “The children had great fun dressing up and learning about the different trades. They were fascinated about all the different aspects of a construction site and asked interesting questions about the new development.”

Teacher Mike Stanfield added: “The children really enjoyed their visit from Bellway and learning about the opportunities to work in house building. Developing a young workforce is important and showing the children the different types of work was a brilliant opportunity.”

Located on a historic site on Bisland Drive, Ashlar Village is a significant collection of new homes, launching in July, and will feature detached homes as well as one and two-bedroom apartments.

Spanning over 400 homes in total, central to the development will be the striking A-listed Water Tower which will be retained as a landmark feature.
