PHD encourages kids to consider the Construction Industry
On Wednesday 16th October, PHD visited Sacred Heart Primary School in Ruislip to encourage their Year 5 children to consider the construction industry as a career choice. Our team of Zoe O’Rourke, Nicole Pearson, and Sofia Sanchez held an interactive presentation where the kids had to guess the five points of PPE, figure out how heavy a 3ft scaffolding tube weighed, and learn about the various roles available within the industry.
