Sunbury schoolchildren gained an insight into the housebuilding industry during a visit from developer Fairview New Homes.
Representatives from the housebuilder delivered a talk to year 3 pupils at St Ignatius Catholic Primary School.
Members of the company’s marketing team gave an overview of the Apollo development which Fairview is currently building on land off Forge Lane, and also explained the various stages involved in planning, building and marketing a new homes development.
Pupils were also taught about the importance of safety on building sites, and were each given a Fairview branded hard hat and high visibility jacket to help reinforce the message.
Following the talk, the children took part in a quiz about housebuilding.
Emer O’Neill, from St Ignatius Catholic Primary School, said: “We were delighted to welcome Fairview New Homes to the school and we’d like to thank them for taking the time to come in and speak to the pupils.
“Apollo is being built just down the road from the school, so this was a great opportunity for the children to learn more about what is happening at the development, and also to get a better understanding of the importance of safety on building sites.
Fiona Ficetola, Marketing Manager for Fairview New Homes, said: “It was a pleasure to meet the pupils at St Ignatius Catholic Primary School and to give them an insight into the housebuilding industry.
“We were very impressed by the knowledge and enthusiasm of the children, and we hope that some may have been inspired to consider construction as a possible career in the future.”
