The Yeovil office of construction and infrastructure company Morgan Sindall has donated high vis jackets to Holy Trinity Primary School.

The jackets will be used by pupils and staff during day trips and walks in the local community, including regular trips to the local Octagon theatre. Morgan Sindall staff presented the 30 jackets to the school’s headteacher and pupils in a special assembly.

Teresa Wheeler, head-teacher at Holy Trinity Primary School, said: “We have an excellent working relationship with Morgan Sindall and we are most grateful for their support in ensuring the safety of our children as they explore their local environment. The children love their visits out, and with these jackets we are able to continue this important aspect of learning for them all.”

An extension to the school was completed by Morgan Sindall in 2013 and now its sister company, Morgan Sindall Property Services, carries out maintenance work at the primary school as required.

Trevor Scourfield, area manager at Morgan Sindall, said: “Safety in and around the school is imperative and the high visibility jackets should go some way to help pupils and staff stay safe during trips out in the local community and further afield.

“We regularly work with the school to carry out essential maintenance works and we are delighted we have been able to assist on this occasion and help the pupils learn more about the importance of safety.”

Morgan Sindall’s Yeovil based Special Works Team is currently on site at a number of projects in the area including Hangar repairs at RNAS Yeovilton, major re-roofing works at the AgustaWestland rotor blade facility and various pump station works for Wessex Water. The team is also currently refurbishing Portland Fire Station.
