Pupils at a North Glasgow School were taught valuable health and safety lessons from a local housebuilder this week.

As part of their daily assembly, children at High Park Primary School in Ruchill Park were visited by Willie Jeffrey, the Regional Health and Safety Manager for Bellway Homes.

Mr Jeffrey spoke to pupils about the firm's work on the nearby Ashlar Village, highlighting the importance of proper health and safety practices on a live construction site.

Children were invited to try on hard hats, hi-vis jackets and hold a variety of tools as they guessed which different workers would use them.

Mr Jeffrey said: "The children had great fun dressing up and learning about the different trades.

"They were fascinated about all the different aspects of a construction site and asked interesting questions about the new development."

When completed, Ashlar Village on Bisland Drive will span over 400 homes including detached houses as well as one and two-bedroom apartments.
