School Safety Visits with Sally Safesteps
With the Summer holidays approaching Griffiths visited Ysgol y Graig and Ysgol Corn Hir in Llangefni to speak to the pupils about the dangers of playing on or near construction sites.
Our Health and Safety mascot, Sally Safesteps, helped make the sessions fun and interactive and the children were thrilled to be asked to create posters to warn visitors to the Llangefni Link Road site of the potential dangers.
The Llangefni Link Road site staff had the difficult decision of choosing the winners and pictured below are the talented artists from each school with their certifcates and posters.
School Visits to Archaeological site
Following the exciting archaeological discoveries during the construction of Sections 1 and 2 of the new Llangefni Link Road, pupils from the two primary schools in Llangefni were invited to visit the site to see, first hand, the archaeological work in progress and view some of the artefacts which have been unearthed.
First to join us were Years 3 & 4 from our near neighbours Ysgol y Graig. In total 96 pupils, in four groups, saw the archaeologists carrying out the painstaking work of excavating the human remains from a specially prepared viewing area adjacent to the archaeological dig area. This ensured the children and their teachers, were able to view the cemetery at close hand without disturbing the meticulous work taking place.
After their visit to the archaeological site the children were given the opportunity to see some of the artefacts, including a human skull. The children were full of questions and were particularly interested in how well preserved the skull and its teeth were.
Similarly, 56 pupils from Years 3 and 6 also visited from Ysgol Corn Hir with some even expressing an interest in pursuing a career as an Archaeologist
The pupils were also given the opportunity to see a small bronze brooch discovered in one of the graves, which is thought to date from the end of the Roman period, together with a brooch clasp and fragments of roofing tile which suggests that there may be the remains of buildings nearby.
