Harleston pupils learn about house and home
14 August 2014
Lucky pupils from Harleston Primary School left the classroom behind recently to visit Persimmon Anglia's new development, The Poppies.
Children from Harleston Primary School were given the opportunity to see a working construction site as well as have a good look around the show home. The 12 Year Two pupils were able to try out Persimmon Homes hard hats for size and were given a fascinating tour by site manager Stacy Brett.
Miss Kate Sheperd, Year Two class teacher at the school, said: “'The staff at The Poppies were very welcoming. This development is just round the corner from the school so it was a fantastic opportunity for the children to safely experience first-hand a construction site close-up.”
“As a school we are very keen to build good links with the local community and experiences like this certainly enable us to offer a broad curriculum as well as to enhance the children’s learning and practical experiences.”
Delighted by the group’s enthusiasm, head of sales and marketing for Persimmon Homes Anglia, Alison Page, said: “It was a pleasure to have the children visit us on our development. They were a credit to the school – and I think we spotted a few budding site managers amongst them!”
“We hope they found the visit interesting and that it will be a valuable addition to their usual day to day schooling.”
Persimmon Homes is delighted that its relationship with the school has gone from strength to strength since they started building in Harleston two years ago.
“We have a close relationship with the school – not only does Persimmon support their annual educational trip to London, one of their former students actually came up with the name of the development here at The Poppies,” said Alison.”
The Poppies is a stunning development of two, three and four bedroom houses and two and three bedroom bungalows. A number of buying incentives are available to customers with growing families, those looking to downsize or people looking for an investment opportunity including Help to Buy and Part Exchange.
