The children of three schools, Ysgol Llwyngwril, Ysgol Llanegryn and Ysgol Bryncrug received a visit from a special visitor, Ivor Goodsite last week courtesy of Wynne Construction who is currently building the new school Ysgol Bro Dysynni in Llanegryn.
The children were given a short presentation by Wynne Construction's Health and Safety Manager, Glyn Hughes about health and safety on building sites and then introduced to Ivor Goodsite. The new school project is registered with the Considerate Constructors Scheme, a national initiative for construction companies and Ivor Goodsite is their mascot, encouraging safety on and around building sites.
Along with the visit, the children also have the opportunity to take part in a "Design a Poster Competition" and the winning designs will be displayed in the Wynne Construction Liaison Suite office on site.
Chris Wynne, Managing Director, Wynne Construction commented: "The work at Ysgol Bro Dysynni is progressing well and with Ivor's help we are ensuring that the local children are aware of the dangers present on any construction site. The children will hopefully enjoy a site visit in the future."
The £5.4m new Ysgol Bro Dysynni primary school in Llanegryn, is due for completion next year and will be a state-of-the-art modern educational facility designed to give the young people of the area the best possible start in life.
The school will include four classrooms with additional practical teaching areas for each room and an additional suite for the local Cylch Meithryn, as well as practical rooms for art and food science and a large library and IT room. The local community will also benefit from a new access to the school through widening of the road into Llanegryn.
