Pupils at Greenwich House Independent School have been working alongside R G Carter Building Ltd to help them with their Design and Technology topic.

All 37 pupils between reception and year six were invited to design a poster, as part of the ‘Considerate Construction’ scheme, to remind others of how to stay safe on a construction site.

The partnership emerged after the school was approached by a pupil’s parent, who works for the Waterloo Housing Company which had contracted R G Carter to develop four flats in Welbeck Way, Louth.

The winner of the poster competition was year six pupil, Abigail, whose poster was put up at the site.

Abigail and the two runners up, Sophie from year four and Coby from year six, also each received a gift voucher, and all the children received a bookmark.

Greenwich House teacher, Mrs Brindle, said: “A member of the Waterloo Housing Group took one of our school assemblies and talked to the children about site safety. The information was very useful to the children as they learnt a lot about how to stay safe around a construction site.

“We are extremely proud of all of the children. They worked really hard on their posters and all of them did a wonderful 
job. They were very motivated and enthused by the whole theme.”
