Site Manager Stephen Macleod with Health and Safety Adviser Alastair Gill previously visited the school to give a safety presentation and to launch a poster competition to educate pupils.

The competition, created to get pupils thinking about safety as works take place, had almost 200 entries. The winner Millar Grant, Primary 7, received an iPad mini, with 14 other lucky pupils also being presented gift bags for their posters and Easter treats for all participants.

Temporary road closures have been set up as result of the works being undertaken near the school. During the works some pupils are walking, supervised in supplied high-visibility vests, from their buses.

Morrison Construction Site Manager Stephen Macleod, said:

‘‘Health and safety is our number one priority at Morrison Construction and we felt it was a great idea to reward the pupil’s efforts getting safely to school while the works have been undertaken.

‘‘We have been overwhelmed by the number of pupils that took part in the safety poster competition and the amount of thought and effort that has gone into each entry.’’

Strathpeffer Primary School Head Teacher Carolyn Ritchie said:

‘‘It was great to have Stephen and Alistair come and speak to the pupils about the importance of site safety while Morrison Construction is working nearby.

‘‘The entire school took part in the safety poster competition and there were some very excited prize winners at the presentation ceremony.’’
