There has been great excitement in Duleek as the builders have arrived and work on the school building has commenced!
We had a visit from the safety officer  to talk to us about being safe around the construction site. He told us all about the safety equipment and materials that are worn by builders on the site. Some lucky boys got to try on hard hats, reflective coats, safety gloves and ear muffs. So we decided to draw up some of our own plans for the new building. We worked in groups to design the school and then built it the next day using blocks, cubes, straws, books etc.
We had great fun turning our class into a construction site for a day!
