After meeting Monmouth Comprehensive School at the Usk show, Robert Price Builders Merchants decided to supply learning materials to Year 10 Built Environment students.
With the materials provided, the Year 10 and 11 pupils have learned how to plaster, tile and even tackle some carpentry projects, with a hope to do some bricklaying in the near future.
“Support from a leading company in the local community is invaluable, and a fantastic opportunity for us to further invest in our Year 10 Built Environment students!” said a spokesperson from the school.
“Materials and equipment donated included timber, plasterboard, plywood, gloves and masks, and we hope it helps to point our students in the direction of their potential career choices.”
“Thank you to Robert Price Abergavenny for their generous donation!”
Janet Jefferies, branch manager, added: “We were more than happy to provide resources to these students. They represent the future of the construction industry and we were delighted to help them experience as many trade skills as possible.”
