25 year nine pupils got into the spirit of the day wearing overalls, hard hats, protective gloves and goggles to experience electrical wiring, plastering, joinery, plumbing and painting and decorating. As part of the team of subcontractors for Parkinsons, building the schools new £1.46 million sports hall the day was organised to offer the pupils insights into what different trades involve and routes into the wide variety of careers available in the construction industry.
