The children of Ysgol Y Bont received a visit from a special visitor, Ivor Goodsite last week courtesy of Wynne Construction who is currently building the new school Ysgol Y Bont in Llangefni.
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 Y Bont 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."
Wynne Construction has been appointed by Anglesey County Council to build the new Ysgol y Bont Special Education Needs School. The £8.5m project will see the relocation of the existing co-educational special school from its current site located on the Bryn Cefni Industrial Estate to the Ysgol Gyfun High School campus in Llangefni.
Ysgol y Bont is a co-educational day special school, specialising in the care and education of students between the ages of 3 and 19 years. The new two storey, eco-friendly school will provide modern learning facilities including new classrooms, multi-purpose hall, hydrotheraphy pool and sensory rooms. The project also includes a number of highway access improvements benefitting both Plas Arthur Leisure Centre and Ysgol Gyfun.
