School pupils get digging with Novus
Pupils at a Warwickshire primary school took part in hands-on learning when they visited a site at their school where our operatives are building an extension.
 
The youngsters, aged six, at Ferncumbe Primary School in Hatton, helped to dig on the site, learned how to lay bricks and how to use spirit levels to engage them with the work of the construction industry in their surroundings. Following their visit, they took part in a question and answer session in the classroom.
 
We have been enlisted to build the extension at the school in work to a value of £200,000 and will be on site for 17 weeks. Once complete, the school will have a brand new classroom and new toilet facilities.
 
Ian Hodgkiss, contracts manager, said: “It was great to have the children on site, they all took an interest in what Novus is doing at their school and were engaged in the construction work being carrying out.
 
“Working in live school environments can be challenging but we make sure the project is a success by communicating with the school and working in partnership with them. Health and safety is of course of the utmost importance to us.
 
“If the site visit has inspired just one youngster to think more about how they could get involved in construction in the future then it will have been a great success.”
