Chapel Road pupils visit their new site
More than 60 pupils from Old Buckenham Primary School and the current Chapel Road School visited the site in February to learn more about the project.
Trainee site manager Thomas Grant, and engineer Jacob Bailey helped the pupils ‘set out’ their new hydrotherapy pool. After enjoying the state-of-the-art theodolite tool to help mark all the points for their mock hydrotherapy pool, all the pupils then viewed the ongoing groundworks from the safe viewing platform, and had the chance to sit on one of the diggers.
Community Investment Advisor Helen Clements also talked the pupils through the roles in the construction industry and introduced them to Morgan Sindall team.
Karen Heap, headteacher of Chapel Road School, said:“The children were really excited and are now keen to learn more. The hands on tasks, and watching and listening to the building activities gave them a real feel for the construction work.”
