Thanks to Egger for visiting!

Apr 22, 2018

A big thank you to Phil and Olly, who both came to visit out school. They work at Egger; a factory in Hexham. They talked to the children about their roles as engineer and apprentice chemist. They explained that they make different types of furniture and worktops. This visit was organised by Mrs Rooney to link with our topic on construction and engineering. Phil explained that we couldn't go to visit the factory because we are not old enough, but they decided to come out to talk to our school because we seemed so friendly! Thank you - we think we are too.

They brought us some pencils and Egger bears for being such good listeners and we received this e-mail after their visit;

Just wanted to thank you for inviting us to your school.  Both Olly and I enjoyed talking to your pupils.  I was really impressed that they were so engaged from start to finish, and weren’t shy when it came to asking questions!
