Highgate Primary School Business Showcase – 05/12/17


Last week,Trainee Business and Marketing Assistant Bradley Longford and Adeana Raper visited Highgate Primary School in Barnsley. The aim of the morning was to give talks to year six students about a future career in construction and their next step into secondary school.

During the event, the children were placed into groups and visited different stands to ask questions and participate in different activities throughout the morning. At the Henry Boot Construction stand, the children had to build the tallest tower in five minutes using straws and connectors. The children used their teamworking skills as well as problem solving to decide on the best structure to use to build the tower.

After completing their tower, all the children were given a goodie bag with Henry Boot Construction branded products and an information booklet about the company, which included a history of the business, examples of projects the company has undertaken and some activities.

“Thank you very much for supporting the business showcase activity at Highgate yesterday. It was great to see the children engaged and asking questions.”
