Youngsters from Gwaunmeisgyn Primary School were rewarded for their artistic endeavors when we announced the winner of a poster competition to promote construction site safety.
We are developing the nearby Trem-y-Cwm sheltered complex in Beddau on behalf of housing association, Trivallis, and we were happy to visit the school recently to share important messages about staying safe near construction sites, as part of a regular community outreach programme.
In response, the pupils created an array of artworks on the subject of staying away from construction sites. And after much deliberation by the judges announced four winners whose designs have now been enlarged and put up as a hoarding at the Trem-y-Cwm site to remind children to be aware of construction site dangers.
Our Community Engagement Officer, Antonia John, said: “It was lovely to meet the pupils at Gwaunmeisgyn Primary School and we were delighted to see how enthusiastic they were about sharing site safety message through their artworks.
“We are a Welsh company and being an active part of the local communities we serve here is very important to us.”
Sarah Kirton, Development Officer from Trivallis, said: “We are always keen to make sure the wider community feels a part of our developments and we would like to thank Gwaunmeisgyn Primary School for bringing such enthusiasm to this enjoyable exercise with a serious underlying message.
Gwaunmeisgyn Primary School headteacher, Jan Morgan, said: “I would like to thank Morganstone and Trivallis for taking the time to visit the children and for showing such an interest in their safety.
“Asking the young people to take part in a practical and fun exercise is a great way of helping them to take on board important issues and topics and I know the visits gave them much food for thought.”
Morganstone’s work developing older persons housing is a vital part of the company’s portfolio and it will provide 32 one and two bedroom apartments with a range of communal facilities.
