Woodworking Session with a Senior School

As part of our Barrhead High School project, pupils from the existing school recently created special Christmas decorations as part of a workshop event organised by BAM Construction.

A group of 3rd year tech students took part in a woodworking demonstration where they were shown the basics of using power tools and the dangers before having the opportunity to create and decorate Christmas trees made out of wooden pallets.

Lewis MacMillan, Assistant Site Manager said,

“The pupils were really enthusiastic and seemed to enjoy the demonstration. It was also a good opportunity to use some unwanted waste materials which were destined for the skip to be reused and enhance the learning experience. We are always keen to introduce students to the world of construction and the variety of career opportunities the sector offers and I think we may have a few future joiners in the making.”

The site team sectioned off a small area adjacent to the site compound and made use of unwanted waste materials. The finished decorations were being displayed on the site hoarding until after Christmas.
